Awash with inspiration, Nuura's designer Sofie Refer sketched the Anoli lights after watching the rainfall on a September afternoon. The shape of rain drops is translated into mouth-blown glass shades, which are hand-painted with a special lustre to give the glass its golden colour. Even the bulb fitting mirrors the drop shape. Shown here is the impressive version with 13 pendants.
