Holophane Lighting

The U.K.-based manufacturer Holophane has been producing a diverse range of innovative lighting since the 1890s. Known for its expertise in glass products, Holophane — Greek for “balanced light distribution” — makes distinctive car lighting, streetlamps and other lighting solutions that have decorative and architectural applications and more.

Holophane glass pendant light fixtures and antique light globes are characterized by an alluring blend of Art Nouveau spirit and industrial–style illumination. These fixtures are fit for a king — Holophane glass products serve all manner of home interiors and were even used as supplemental lighting during coronation ceremonies in Westminster Abbey for both King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II.

On 1stDibs, browse a variety of Holophane lighting options in different sizes and styles to create a warm and welcoming environment, be it indoors or out in your backyard.
