In France in 2010, Lucie Koldova set out on her successful path with the distinguished glass lighting collections Muffins and Balloons, which she created for Brokis, a traditional Czech manufacturer.
Currently based in Prague, she continues working for international clients creating furniture pieces, glass sculptures, and timeless lights, objects of desire – chic and purified. Her work encompasses daily products, poetic gallery objects, and limited series. Her creative interest mainly focuses on glass and lighting design, or, as she says, “My central themes: circle, sphere, cone of light, glass… just one step further. Knowing I do what I love makes me relaxed and content. Passion and joy. Crystal-clear, juicy, vivid joy.”
The Whistle collection includes three glass pipes of larger dimensions and showcases the beauty and quality of the material as well as the mastery of Bohemian glass artisans.
The external shape seems to trace the ray of light and symbolically portray traditional whistles. The design builds on a series of lamps made of transparent glass, but in this case, it has a more technical appearance. The spot lamp is highlighted by offset inks, while the outer form creates the shade of the internal soul. It further defines the precise shape of elongated pipes as well. Handblown objects create a visual line of archetypal lamps directing light downwards.
