The name Lupa translate from Polish as ‘lens’, an apt description for this pendant piece from Jeremi Nagrabecki, the creative force behind Velt. Key to the design, the halogen light source is located above the glass shade rather than within it, as in conventional fixtures. This has the effect of distorting and magnifying the light that travels through the hand blown, 15cm diameter glass piece. The transformer  for the light is hidden in a metal ceiling rose or, in the wall mounted version, within the metal sconce.
