The solution was to make the cap part of the globe itself – it is hidden, yet easier to handle than any other globe. A senior glassblower at the Polish glass factory suggested using an old forgotten machine that makes it possible to polish the edges of the globe and zero-tolerance cover. On both the opaque and crystal globes, the lid is an integral invisible component, and at last it has perfected the globe concept. Completed with a transparent acrylic cross, the rest of the hanging structure and the electric cables are assembled in a single cord.
“If you want to shape an interior space with light, you really need an uncompromising light source. So it’s no wonder my dream was a globe as perfect as the full moon, with no shadows – just pure iridescent light,” says Alexander.
