Expressing Light As Art

Bespoke Light Installations designed to make spaces more alluring.
The Snow White installation was created by Shivangi Shah, Founder & Creative Head, Hive Home, along with Sravanya Rao Pittie, Interior Designer, Soka Design Studio, for a residence in Worli, Mumbai.

The larger than life, nature inspired Snow White stands 10 ft tall in a sprawling 75 sqft expanse on the ceiling. The installation comprises 2500 hand blown glass leaves. The interplay between glass and light creates a sense of well-being and warm atmosphere. In the Illumination, the light sculpture defines its shape and presence, becoming an artwork. The leaves have been crafted from traditional art of flame work in glass, set around a very dense custom structure of stainless steel and finished to match the color of the leaves.
Shivangi Shah, Hive Home
“We combine the authenticity of glass craft with innovative technologies and creative craftsmanship. Within a few years, we have established our brand as an authority for delivering bespoke lighting sculptures and light installations made from hand blown glass.

Shivangi Shah, Hive Home
