Collaborations

We are thrilled to introduce The Facet Collection, a Bella Figura collaboration with world renowned, London-based interior design studio Laura Hammett Interiors. The origins of this collection began with our popular Mayfair and Diamond collections. Inspired by these designs as well as the intertwining patterns and swirls we see naturally formed within sheets of ice, this collaboration has produced five stunning pieces, currently showcased within Laura Hammett's latest Knightsbridge project.

With ceiling lights, wall light and a unique table lamp featured within this capsule collection, each product is finished with a new 'Dry Ice' Murano glass finish with Italian metal work in brushed dark bronze, brushed gold and brushed nickel. Visit our London Showroom to see these majestic pieces in person.

Laura Hammett of Laura Hammett Interiors comments:
"The creation of this exciting new collection has been a natural evolution for Laura Hammett working in partnership with Bella Figura. We share similar values of only sourcing the finest materials and working to the highest standards for our discerning customers. We are proud to showcase the pieces in our newly completed Knightsbridge project - the lighting is such an important focal feature of the key reception rooms and we see these creations as works of art in their own right. While we designed the pieces to work and sit beautifully in this London project, the idea is that the lighting will sit easily in luxury homes around the world."

"The collection has been inspired by the material combination of the rich brushed bronze paired with the soft luminous glass. I wanted to play with the form of the glass to really emphasise its qualities. The carved faceted pieces create a really subtle yet dynamic three-dimensional quality as the light travels through the different densities and the natural light in the room hits each facet of the glossy surface in such a beautiful way. I also love the scale of the pieces. Wall lights and pendants can often look very lost in a room so I wanted to create some large forms and volumes which would become the feature of the room. To me lighting is the showpiece in an interior."
Ross Lloyd, Sales Director for Bella Figura comments:
"We have been working on this collaboration behind the scenes for over two years, sourcing materials direct from Italy and working with the finest craftspeople to ensure we create the most refined exquisite final pieces. We work with family run businesses in Venice with over 50 years' experience of researching the latest techniques in terms of lighting and design, whilst always ensuring quality at the fore."

"An incredible amount of work goes into making these fine creations. The distinct shape of the glass is achieved through intricate mould pressing, while the characteristic bubbles and swirls that have become such a prominent feature of the glass are made possible only through heating the glass at the highest temperature. The pieces are then polished to perfection and the glass is then inset into the iron metalwork. This is then electroplated in three finishes; brushed gold, brushed nickel and brushed dark bronze, a traditional colour found across the whole Veneto region, before being finished with a protective lacquer.
"The shape of the pieces allows them to omit a warm calming light to any room and combined with dimmers they will complement the most luxurious of ambiances."
