Neolione by Boadesign Studio


Czech designers Boadesign Studio have created a collection of chandeliers made of curved borosilicate glass tubes.

Called Neolione, the collection includes three different designs.

The each light features glass arms that have been bent into angular shapes, curved upwards or looped back on themselves.

Here's some information from the designers:


Neoline is a collection of chandeliers designed especially for hotel and restaurant interiors, spaces typically large enough to allow the unconventional design of these chandeliers to excel.

The first idea for the collection was born in 2006 when the first sketches and visualizations of this collection came into existence.

Since then, development of the collection began with the right technologies to facilitate its creation being investigated.

The final shape and size of the lights were influenced and determined by technologies available.

The design of the collection bears fluid lines, reminescent of classic crystal chandeliers which Neoline can easily replace with their unconventional minimalism and simplicity.

Material: borosilicate glass, rust- resistant steel.

  • Justas

    really nice designs. Dough I cant understand actual size- ether way its really great

  • Laila

    like it v much :)

  • Olivier

    okay … but what technologies have they been waiting for?

    As a start, what kind of light technology have they chosen?

  • Wonderful design. What’s the power consumption?

  • xtiaan

    one again stunning design let down by photos

    dear dezeen as you are a self professed site for designers architectects and artists, ie people who work with three dimensional form, any chance you could inculde something that indicates scale?

  • Urgent.

    I made aswell a nearly same design a few years ago.
    I have to find the name of the designer but I can’t find it on the net.

    Do you have any website/ contact where I can check from where this weard resemblance is coming from?

    Kind regards

  • What?!

    Your comment is better suited towards the designer of the products and not at Dezeen. Dezeen does a remarkable job on posting amazing designs but its the designers that photograph and supply the images that dezeen posts and not dezeen themselves. So remember your own critic when you become a designer and you want your work published on a website.

    BTW, the work is beautifully elegant.

  • awesome use of neon. what’s new about this technology?? Why not use HF transformers to minimalize even more.

  • xtiaan

    basically they are using the tubes from neon signage, these usually have a fairly hefty (that is to say physically large) transformer wired up to them, my guess is they have had to find one small enough to put in the light itself

  • I’m thinking because of a comment, I thought there was some idea that the technology was new.
    The tubing is approximately 15mm diam. That and the fact that they are chandeliers should give some idea as to the scale. They are very efficient at between 40-80 lumens per watt depending on transformers and colors/gases.
    Lovely pieces and very inspiring.

  • Nice, but extremely fragile. I wonder how are they gonna package them.

  • BB

    have a look at Cactus lighting

  • xtiaan


    so they just post whatever pics they are given whether they are good bad or whatever, they never request pics ? I dont think so
    and even if it was the case a simple email would suffice to ask for lxwxh dimensions. As I said the emphasis is on three dimensional form.
    whats the point in doing something great badly?

  • cacas

    and comes the neon again… but inteligent this time!
    how much!? nice idea!

  • Jan
    A- size: 1000×800 mm 350W
    B- size: 800×600 mm 200W
    The price is between 1.000 / 1.800 EUR,
    depends on size, type and material of upper part.

  • So beautiful! But too expensive…
