Light Vision 2018


After much anticipation Brokis have now released their new Light Vision collection for 2018.


First shown at IMM Cologne and all designed by Brokis’s Art Director, Lucie Koldova, the new lighting concepts each offer new and unique designs.


Brokis is one of our most loved lighting brands and late last year we were invited to visit them in the Czech Republic and tour their beautiful Janštejn Glassworks. We saw first hand the lengthy process which ensures every light is made to the highest of standard.


Puro Sparkle


Brokis


Puro is a boldly minimalistic collection which was inspired by the Spanish word for ‘Cigar’ which also means ‘Pure’ in reference to the designs clean lines.


The endless variability of the Puro collection has given rise to a new suspension light called Sparkle. Sparkle levitates in space and dominates its interior landscape. It is a light sculpture and the embodiment of positive energy.

Big One


Brokis


The Big One embodies gentle, poetic and balanced proportions.


Big One is a new large-format light with a matt core. Within a protective outer shell of glass, a ray of light emanates from a smaller glass sphere and passes freely through. The sophisticated design of a bubble suspended in the centre of a large sphere evokes a sense of levitation in space.

Jack O’Lantern


Brokis


The Jack O’ Lantern was designed to be a functional object with an aesthetic look of a jewel in the home.


The almost levitating metal frame holds a luminous pearl of mouth blown matt glass.


This subtle and geometrically balanced light offers a wide variety of combinations. It can be hung separately or in vertical lighting arrangements. In addition to the suspension variant, there is also a wall composition comprising five frames joined in a single module for up to five glass spheres, which rely on nothing more than gravity to stay in place.

Ivy


Brokis


Just as plants grow and climb up the walls of a house, Ivy offers a special system of modular components, thanks to which it can be used to achieve a highly innovative take on decorative lighting in both vertical and horizontal compositions. The elegant branches can be hung separately or joined together to create a curtain of light.


Variable, elegant, and precise, Ivy is a high-tech lighting concept well suited to both commercial and residential applications.

Lucie Koldova at IMM Cologne 2018's Das Haus


Brokis


For this years IMM Cologne the Das Haus project was guest designed by Lucie Koldova.


Brokis


The Czech designer wanted to tell a story of an ideal house not with words but with lights. Lucie’s installation was divided into rooms; one for relaxation, another for inspiration, another for dressing and a final one for the spirit.


Brokis


Her design featured no kitchen and she said during an IMM presentation in her Prague studio, “I have many other important things to show. In my ideal house, I would not be cooking.” 


Brokis


 Lucie began her design career by studying at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and later went on to join Arik Levy’s studio in Paris. On moving back to Prague Lucie designed Muffins with Czech lighting brand Brokis and received international attention.


Brokis


Owner and founder of Brokis, Jan Rabell spoke about Lucie during a meeting at the company’s headquarters saying “She brought her proposals and they were great. They had the image I wanted for Brokis. And she pushes. She pushes and pushes.” 


The Czech designer showed many debuts at IMM Cologne not only for interior lighting but furnishings which completed the look.
