&Tradition Bulb SR1

The very first light light bulbs were beautiful hand made objects of wonderment, the very image of inspiration. The bulb walls were thicker than today to bear the vacuum and contained the small irregularities that were the hallmark of mouth blown glass. The SR1 recaptures this beautiful imperfection, designed by Sofie Refer to emulate those early bulbs and further the Nordic glass making tradition, the light is a song of sand, soda and chalk carried on the breath of the glass master. Having had considerable success with the SR1 Sofie then created the larger Mega Bulb SR2 in 2007 thus bringing a whole new audience and relevance to the humble old light bulb.
