Check out the high-quality artisanal lighting you can shop from W. Atelier:

1. Neverending Glory by Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus

The Neverending Glory collection consists of five opulent candle chandeliers that reflect nostalgic emotions. The collection is also a symbol of prime moments of appreciation and glory with each silhouette reminiscent of iconic chandeliers from five of the world’s most eminent concert halls and theatre. They are La Scala in Milan, Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and the Czech Republic’s Estates Theatre in Prague. The studio was founded in 2012 by Jan Plechac and Henry Wielgus, former students of The Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague.

2. Crystal Rock by Arik Levy

The success of the initial collection of Crystal Rock pendant lights (first photo above) led Arik Levy to extend this versatile design line with the Crystal Rock vases. Crystal Rock is created with perfectly cut, yet roughly sculpted contemporary silex that highlights the interaction between light and darkness. The multitalented Arik Levy is an artist, technician, photographer, designer, and filmmaker whose works can be viewed in prestigious galleries and museums around the world.

3. Facet by Moritz Waldemeyer

It seemed Moritz Waldemeyer was attempting to systematise the making of a traditional chandelier with the Facet by turning the geometrical shape of the classic chandelier outline into a hexagonal glass unit resembling a diamond. Clear, disciplined, and geometrical—these are the traits characteristic of the Facet. Be it a single pendant or in combination to form a large chandelier, the light source within each individual components allows the Facet to be universal and almost unlimitedly extendable. Moritz Waldemeyer is an internationally renowned designer based in London, whose works range from art and product design to fashion to entertainment. His forward thinking and playful experimentation with technology, art, fashion, and design have also resulted in bespoke light-studded costumes for the 2012 London Olympics Ceremony performers as well as for celebrities such as Will.I.AM and Rihanna.

4. Growing Vases by Nendo

Growing Vases is a lighting installation created by Nendo in collaboration with Lasvit to convey the quixotic appeal of glass that is seemingly incomplete but provides a breath of fresh air and opens up new possibilities. It has a whimsical feel that alludes to a glass forest filled with abstract flowers and branches. The playful nature of Growing Vases is seen where the metal pipes used to blow glass into the vases are intentionally left attached to the glass, depicting the flowers and branches. However, the vases and flowers are inverted so that it seems as if the vases are blooming from the flowers instead of the other way round. Growing vases breaks conventions and symbolises the birth of life. Nendo is a design studio headed by Oki Sato and based in Tokyo. Nendo aims to offer fresh perspectives by combining the philosophy of eco-design with the traditional processes of manufacturing inspired by daily life.
