Bloom is inspired by the full blossom of summer. It spreads its petals out revealing the soft brightness at its centre. The light plays off the flowing curves and produces ever changing shapes when you look around the pendant. Bloom casts light upwards and downwards without exposing the direct glare of the bulb. You can easily bring this hint of summer to any pendant fitting quickly and easily with its universal hanger. Bloom is intended for use with energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs or LED bulbs.
With Bloom we wanted to break away from the straight lines and geometric shapes of some of our other lights and design a form that resembled something you might see in nature. A flower with the bright light at its centre seemed the right thing. The shapes illuminate and reflect the light differently around the whole pendant giving it visual richness from every angle. We hope it brings a touch of summer to your home – Trent & Tom

Blue Marmalade® live light live bright™
We are Trent and Tom and we set up Blue Marmalade because we believe that good design can help us all live a more enjoyable less wasteful life. How? By creating eco-friendly products that are as interesting witty challenging and full of life as our customers. Products that people not only want to buy but that we know they’ll want to keep for a long time. And by doing it all in a way that keeps our own footprint as light as possible – local production sustainable materials all production cast-offs re-used and products flat-packed for transport yet straight forward to put together.
So back in 2002 why did two furniture designers pack in their jobs to go it alone? Because every home needs to be filled with products that people love and we wanted to create those products. Important to us is not just the product itself but the process that brings it into existence. It is this often unseen and neglected side that we wanted to do differently and do better. The established ways that bring us the products we buy is perhaps not always the best and we think that just because everyone else does things one way is no reason to follow suit. That is why we set about designing products that are less harmful to produce and building a manufacturing loop that is as clean eco and efficient as we can make it. Because there’s a better way to do things so lets get it right right from the start!
Here’s to a lighter brighter world for us all.
