Cantu Bathrooms Presents : SkLO | LIT

The discipline of design.
The tradition of craft.

The desire to bring light to glass is irresistible. It is precisely this unique relationship with light that makes handblown glass so magical. This relationship is what we explore in SkLO : LIT

Our process of design and development is revolutionary. We bring metal to the glass, to give structure and scale. Rather than an afterthought, it is the relationship between metal and glass that drives the SkLO : LIT design process.Our designs seek to achieve a harmony and balance between these two materials, to give beautiful light. We add technology and complexity, but the light must seem natural and effortless.

In SkLO : LIT, our commitment to craft and handmade quality go beyond handblown glass. Our metals are substantial and solid. Exposed fasteners and expressed joints mark our work. Traditional metalsmithing, custom machining, hand-applied finishes, and a careful attention to detail are the hallmarks of SkLO : LIT.

SkLO is a design and manufacturing company with locations in both California (SkLO US) and the Czech Republic (SkLO EU). We produce lighting to serve global markets, with certifications such as UL listing and CE marking available.

BALANCE PENDANT

The balance pendant is a minimal, sculptural suspended light composed of a larger lit 7″ (18cm) diameter sphere on a short horizontal stem balanced by a smaller lit 4 1/2″ (11cm) diameter sphere on a longer, downward arcing stem. The spherical glass diffusers feature the signature SkLO double-dipped, fire-polished mouths which show where the glass is broken from the blower’s pipe, making each unique

BELL JAR LIGHT

 

Handblown glass “bell” shapes act as the diffuser for a single bulb suspended within. A solid brass cap sits atop the neck, the socket hangs from the cap on a short rigid brass stem. Available in two sizes and two glass colors: Clear, and transparent Olivin.

DEW PENDANT

 

The dew pendant is an intense expression of the molten nature of handblown glass. For a diffuser, the dew pendant features a solid sculpted glass shape composed of layers of glass applied while hot, giving it a “dripping” appearance. The glass is permanently attached to the solid brass armature, which is hidden behind a brass cylinder. The light bulb is changed by simply lifting the brass cylinder upwards to access the socket. Note that the fixture also “uplights” slightly through the open top of the cylinder. The glass diffuser element is available in either clear glass or sandblasted glass, for two very different effects.

DRAPE ARM 1 SCONCE

 

The drape arm 1 sconce consists of a single lit sphere of handblown Czech glass suspended from a moveable arm. The sphere is either 4 1/2″ (11cm) or 7″ (18cm) diameter and is suspended from the arm on a fabric-wrapped electrical cord. The exposed cord passes through the end of the arm and returns to the canopy at the wall. Solid brass construction throughout, the arm is hinged for a full 180-degree horizontal swing and is available in two lengths. The spherical glass diffusers feature the signature SkLO double-dipped, fire-polished mouths which show where the glass is broken from the blower’s pipe, making each unique.

DRAPE ARM 3 PENDANT

 

The drape arm 3 pendant consists of 3 individual pendants hung from a 3-arm brass structure suspended from a single canopy. Each individual pendant is a 4 1/2″ (11cm) diameter sphere of handblown Czech glass suspended on a fabric-wrapped electrical cord. The exposed cords issue from the canopy and pass through the individual arms. The spherical glass diffusers feature the signature SkLO double-dipped, fire-polished mouths which show where the glass is broken from the blower’s pipe, making each unique.
