The fun and classy candy-cane-style glass lights designed by Sebastian Wrong in the Filigrana series of pendants are handmade from Venetian glass, using techniques from Murano that date back to the 16th century.

Traditional craftsmanship from Murano, or the glass island, has enticed designers and brands for generations. The Filigrana lights, manufactured by iconic British design brand Established & Sons, unveil the highly skilled, mouth-blown production process; each piece results in an original, unique product. The brand communicates in a press release:

The colored stripes of glass are rolled into the surface of each shade, creating a candy-cane pattern.” 

London-born Sebastian Wrong is Design Director of Established & Sons and an award-winning product designer with more than 18 years of experience in manufacturing. Established & Sons’ commitment to skilled craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques allows the brand to produce intelligent designs that are at the same time diverse in the extreme yet united in their quest for the extraordinary.
