The range features ceiling lights and table lamps, all of which appear to be made from colliding quarters from one orb. The ceiling lights come suspended by metal rods, while the table versions lack a base or other kind of support, and are placed on their side.

The lights are held in a metal framework, and feature white acrylic domes – which are available in two sizes. Collision is a recurring theme for Bohinc, who has designed similar broken orbs for bracelets, rings and pendants.

“As I have always loved the deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form, I saw lighting as an opportunity to explore these ideas in a new way,” the designer said.

“Collision is about the splitting of perfection; in this case a perfect sphere has broken but in a very symmetrical manner. It is almost like the pieces are sliding apart and could easily slide back.”

“That is what gives it the feeling of movement and stillness at the same time, a dynamic interaction and a contradiction – something that always interests me.”

Designing the metal framework was a particular challenge for Bohinc, as well as understanding how to evenly distribute the light. “The key was in approaching each quarter as its own entity,” she explained.
