Nelly is the result of putting together a team of exciting young designers, with the 650-year-old glassworking tradition on the Venetian island of Murano. The aim was to produce a timeless design that would fit in to any lifestyle. The bulb is inside the frosted white glass body. The Murano glass “hat” rests on top.
When BrogliatoTraverso first showed us the concept, they said that it would be like your little best friend. Our Company Dog Holly has a best friend called Nelly, so we called the light after her.

The families on the Venetian island of Murano have been perfecting the art of working with glass for over 650 years. It is an extraordinary material: a supercooled liquid, as can be seen by the occasional bubbles and swirls. These are not faults. Similarly, measurements in glass cannot be exact, so the hat will be larger than the top of the body.
