The project of the lamp “Zvonac” arose from the competition by Zagrebačka Banka and the Croatian Chamber of Crafts in 2013, where we have entered the top ten works. “Zvonac” has been designed by Drago Havranek and produced by Goran Vlah who normally produces real bellmen bells.
The suspended lamp "Zvonac" is inspired by the basic shape of a metal bell used by the Bellmen during the carnival in the surroundings of the Croatian cities of Rijeka and Kastav. They have a long and unique tradition. It is believed that the Bellmen dressed in sheep clothing and wearing bells, have “chased away the evil spirits of winter, announcing spring” with the sound of their bells.
The lamp "Zvonac" with its light, instead of “chasing away evil spirits”, is creating a pleasant, light and positive atmosphere.
The name "Zvonac" is a local name for the standard term for bell (Croatian: “zvono”).
The basic version is a suspended lamp made of three "bells" of various sizes hanging on a joint holder – a horizontal pipe around which the electric cable is wrapped in order to regulate the height of each lamp. Thus in one option, we can adjust “Zvonac" to the height of room: in the living room, above the big table or in business premises. “Zvonac” provides a moderate light directed downward.In this version the bells are white and the cables are wrapped with red textile. These are also the two most common colours used by the Bellmen in their masks and clothing
