Klove lights are form-based and rooted in Indian culture and this seeps into everything they design and produce. Indian architecture especially temples, jewellery and festivals are a constant source of inspiration. Klove seek to continuously navigate it’s journey by exploring different forms in the fluidity of hand blown glass. Combining this craft with choices such as wire work, brass, silver, aluminium, wrought iron or stainless steel onto new age materials like acrylic is a challenge they enjoy. As a luxury boutique studio, Klove combines glass, steel, brass, ceramic and stone to construct installations, objects and statement pieces. The design themes flow from neo-classical to contemporary, combining different temporal and textural styles, all keeping in mind a global citizen looking for timeless and bold art pieces suited for modern living. Key sources of inspiration include the spiritual: the tree of life, the matrix of existence and serenity.
