• Matrioshka: SMOKE is the New Black

While our warehouses are busy readying stocks of new product lines for Autumn, our design team has been busy too. innermost is pleased to announce a 4th colour that will join the Matrioshka colour way – Grey. It is a smokey colour that illuminates wonderfully on the lamp’s shapely form.

Design trends tend to be unpredictable and subject to sudden change. But one trend that has certainly been on the rise is smokey or cloudy glass.

Smoke coloured glass is sultry and mysterious. Its dark outline calls for intensity and drama – Which is why it doesn’t come as a surprise that it was so popular during the 1970s, a time where bold patterns, colours, and attitudes dominated the design scene.

So Smoke or Grey Glass can be retro, but its understated appearance also lends beautifully to creating quiet sophistication or loud contrasts against other materials in a modern setting – iridescent pieces or metallics, for instance.

Be prepared to see more smoke glass pieces coming soon from innermost!

MATRIOSHKA is a product of Stone Design‘s curious investigation into the beautiful medium of glass – translucent bodies of colour reflect and refract light, reshaping the world through each lens.

Hand-blown in the Czech Republic, then assembled in our Telford Factory in the UK, this new glass collection was first launched in Red, Blue, and Yellow during this year’s Euroluce in Milan.
