Onion dome shape origins in architecture are still being explored and historians are not certain from where exactly the inspiration takes place. Onion domes were widely used in religious buildings in Europe and Asia starting from the 13th century and are mainly attributed to Christian culture. One of the theories suggests that the shape resembled the candle flame and had a special spiritual meaning. I took this theory as my starting point for the Flames Lamp.
Flames pendant lamp is made from a coated metal frame and flame shapes set with led panels. In the center of the frame there is a spherical glass pendant with a standard led bulb. A combination of the two lighting types in one lamp provides a whimsical outer glow and at the same time has enough brightness for a large space. The lamp is intended as an architectural centerpiece for private or comercial spaces.
