Ambient and soft light for the home | Donya by Anour

Really happy to be working together with Anour on a next project for my kitchen to perfect the lighting. As most lamps by Anour are handmade it will take some weeks before I can show you the result, but I know it will be worth the wait and look amazing! I have been following and admiring the brand for the past few years and love their minimalistic approach on design. 

Donya is the new lamp collection and offers an ambient and soft light, with charm and uniqueness. A versatile piece for both home and hospitality projects and available as a pendant, table and wall lamp. 

Made from Opal glass mounted on a simple and elegant body of Gold Brushed Metal, Silver Brushed Metal or Noir Brushed Metal offering the right finish for everyone’s personal taste and home. The lamp can be displayed alone or in groups to highlight a room’s architectural features or decor.  

Donya – when light touches you
Anour is Farsi and means light, Architect Arash Nourinejad, founded Anour in 2007. More than a year he worked on formulating the design of Donya. Inspired by how a glass object would illuminate when light is directed towards it and how it would change and react when you move the object, his intention was to minimize glare, but retain its ambient shine.  

After spending more than a year formulating the design, without compromising on the connections or material choices, it has evolved with an innovative glass movement. In the table version it was further developed with the use of a powerful magnet to hold the glass in place. A simple, yet elegant solution that embodies the tactile properties of the Anour universe with a fresh twist.
