Atelier Anaka, a Montreal based designer lighting brand has recently launched its 2020 collection of luxurious handcrafted lightings. Each bespoke lighting piece is assembled by hand in Montreal ateliers. Similarly, the glass pieces are mouth-blown and hand-cut by master craftspeople of Quebec’s Eastern townships.
Atelier Anaka’s 2020 collection is crafted with various elements like glass, stone and metals. This collection of luxurious handcrafted lightings is specially made by materials that are designed to bring out the inherent beauty of these elements with natural textures. For instance, Industrial solid brass components lend a sculptural feel to the modern design of each fixture. Moreover, it complements the delicate surfaces of the glass.
The new collection introduces hues of Rose, Peony and Olive which blend perfectly with the classic shades of Smoke, Alabaster and Amber within its luxurious handcrafted lightings. Atelier Anaka has also introduced new glass shapes: The rounded-edge rectangle of the Lilianne and flattened oval of the Lennox exemplify the technical evolution of this collection. The Martin Dome, in luxurious leather, finished marble is another new addition to the collection. The collection is inspired by lunar surfaces and astral bodies.
The 2020 collection also includes the Paulina and Elaine Pendants luxurious handcrafted lightings, two perfect 12-15mm thick, hand-cut blown glass globes. The Paulina features a classic Battuto cut over 50% of the surface, the Elaine features the Battuto as well as a frosted honeycomb cut. Each model is available in 6-inch or 10-inch variations.
The Victoria.15 is another addition to the collection, a sculptural branch chandelier constructed with knurled solid brass components and round opal glass orbs, perfect for lighting a dramatic staircase.
The new pieces perfectly complement the existing collection. The Katie Pendant, one of the first luminaires created by Atelier Anaka, retains an important place in the collection. The solid brass hardware has been updated to a sleek cable system that is almost invisible, allowing Katie to virtually float over any surface.
The Steven Dome is the most popular light fixture by Atelier Anaka. It has been updated with the new cable system as well as the addition of a luxurious round white marble plate inside the dome that acts as a reflector.
