Balloons Table Lamp
Designed by Lucie Koldova & Dan Yeffet for Brokis
Made in Czech Republic
Balloons, a collection of timeless lights embodying rudimental forms evoking images of hot air balloons, captivates with the beauty of large-format handblown glass and an elegant metal reflector hovering within. The design’s charm lies in the use of two independent glass sections to achieve the impression of an integral whole. Lavish proportions and an elegant hand-pressed metal reflector are the collection’s defining traits.
The size of the largest shade pushes the very boundaries of glassblowing technology and illustrates the exceptional skill and craftsmanship of Bohemian glassmakers. The Balloons collection is one of the pillars of the Brokis portfolio. Balloons also make an outstanding sculptural statement during the day when they are switched off.

Balloons Table Lamp by Lucie Koldova and Dan Yeffet for Brokis follows the centuries-old tradition and experience of master glassmakers. The precision crafting of hand-blown glass instills distinctive, enduring character and outstanding quality. The glass shades are formed from multiple layers of molten glass, each of which is scrutinized by the master glassmaker prior to being blown into the mold. Up to 70% of the resulting quality is achieved in this stage of production. No less attention to detail is paid in handcrafting the wooden elements of the light. Each piece is individually processed by the artisan in a series of strictly observed production stages.
