This season, Northern Lighting replaced the original purple colour with smoky grey, giving Say My Name a neutral tone that keeps pace with the colour palettes popular today. Like the original version, the new colour was created in the glass furnaces of Venice, and will be available with a glossy transparent surface or a matt finish.
Say My Name’s expressive shape speaks volumes about light, colour, elegance and style. Its contours, clean lines and simple design reflect contemporary sensibilities and traditional glass-making techniques. ey all come together in two versions: one that can be hung from the ceiling as a pendant, and one that stands in an upright position to form a table lamp. The skill required to transform such a large mass of molten glass into a hollow sphere could only be found among master glassblowers in Venice, where each lamp is hand-blown entirely from Venetian glass.
