With Holly, Homstvedt and Klock have challenged preconceptions of how an acoustic lighting should look. The ambition with Holly was to create a beautiful object that also happens to be very functional. Holly acoustic lighting is sculptural and enigmatic, playing with the contrasts between light, reflection, and shadows. Holly awakens thoughts and associations that might soar to the Moon or the Sun. But the designers’ source of inspiration was rather more down to earth.
“We were thinking of holly and its beautiful berry clusters. Our working name for it was Holly, as well,” – says designer Runa Klock.
