Working with basic shapes in different variations creates designs that last over time. The lantern came about naturally, as a combination of cylinders and spheres with harmonising proportions, feel and practicality. The glass is a nod to older, optically blown objects with the refraction of light and the resulting play of light.

Peter Nylander’s Lux candle lantern is intended to be used at bright moments in life, placed where people meet loved ones, gather and socialise. It can be on the table, by the seating area, on a patio, in the great hall or in the small living room.
