Sidse Werner Mythos, 1989, Holmegaard glass pendant light
Designed by Sidse Werner - Produced by Holmegaard Glassworks - Model Mythos - Year of design 1989
A large opal-white mouth-blown cased glass pendant.
The design is wonderfully light, bright and fresh thanks to the simple, rhythmic and calm shape of the glass.
The glass being cased also helps to make the piece radiant as there are multiple surfaces for the light to bounce off. Cased glass means that two differently coloured molten glasses where put together just before being blown, in this case white opal coloured glass and clear glass.
The light would work particularly well above a breakfast bar or dining table that was close to French doors or a window so the glass could dazzle.
In addition to lighting architect and industrial designer Sidse Werner also designed furniture, textiles and glass. She believed that
'The things that surround us reflect our attitude to life, better to have one good thing than ten so-so'1
