The lights are hand-blown and flame-polished by artisans in the Czech Republic, which is historically known for its production of decorative Bohemian glass.
According to Lustre founder Lena Torchikova, the design fuses these long-established craft practices with a design that is “both contemporary and classic at the same time”.
Sasha is available in four colours – black smoke, aurora yellow, fir green and amber – while Ilona can also be rendered in a tarnished petrol blue.
Torchikova, who grew up in Azerbaijan, began her design career after the collapse of the USSR by making fashionable clothes when there were none to be found.
She turned to glassware after moving to the Czech Republic in her 20s and now works with local glassmakers to bring the country’s rich heritage to a wider audience.
