The designs are among the largest blown-glass luminaires in the lighting industry and require several skilled artisans to manipulate the substantial pieces and craft them by hand.

The multistep process yields a rich, smooth surface, its three layers of glass generating a diffuse, glare-free glow that bathes a space in soft light.

Ghost’s handcrafted quality is complemented by Vibia’s innovative technology. The pendant includes a sleek black heat sink affixed to the top that dissipates the heat emitted by the high-power LED.

Nearly invisible suspension cables attached to it seamlessly conduct electricity and lend the luminaire the look of floating mid-air like a ghostly spirit.

The table lamp is also fit with heat sinks mounted on an aluminum plate in the midsection of the stacked silhouette. This streamlined feature stabilizes the top and bottom pieces and ensures even heat dissipation over the entire surface, while doubling as a hand-touch dimmer.
