Mega Bulb is a mouth blown glass pendant that was introduced to the market in 2006. Designed by Sofie Refer for Danish manufacturer &tradition, the younger sister of Bulb, remains just as elegant today. The new larger version of the original design was introduced as a response to all requests for poetic lighting in large spaces.
The small irregularities in the mouth blown glass make each of the pendants one of a kind that share the story of the glass master’s personal efforts in changing sand, soda and chalk into a modern classic using a thousand year old method. Mega Bulb comes in four different cord colours, and offers a low efficiency bulb option.
