TIM designed by Olgoj Chorchoj for BOMMA
Inspired by the dark characters of Tim Burton, the suspension lamp TIM was originally created to house movie characters at one of Burton’s exhibitions in Prague. After a positive reception at the exhibition, Bomma soon released the TIM lights at Salone del Mobile 2015 and success quickly followed. These carefully crafted luminaires are free-hand blown and weigh up to 30 kilos. Each unit measures up to 750mm, a dimension very few glassmakers in the world can achieve.

This unique system of harnessed light is available in various configurations including singular units, or clusters of three or five.
