The new collection of lights, ‘Spinning Moons’, take a step forward.
Narrative comes to play.
The architect uses the traditional, well-known techniques of glassblowing and mosaic floorings.
The light comes alike full moon from a sphere of opal, hand-blown glass. The basis is a cone made in the tradition of mosaic floorings, a technique frequently seen in old greek, neoclassical and modern houses. Handmade through a casting progress, that uses a variety of stones and glasses arranged in a way that reminds the shinny, smooth touch of a sea pebble. Despite its weight the cone can swivel like a big spinning top, a toy from the past.
It is a play of geometry and materials. A swivel of earth and air.
‘Spinning Moons’ come in various sizes and weights.
