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.

The show “Objects” consists of work in the tradition of objets trouves or found objects but with a clear intention of being used in a considered and practical manner. Reclaimed materials and existing forms are the beginning of new narrations in space, Don Kihot, spinning tops and sofa.

A coexistence of the light nature of the form, the robustness of concrete and the glow of copper.

‘Spinning Top’ is a light constructed by the traditional, well-known technique of mosaic floorings frequently seen in old greek neoclassical and modern houses. The cone is 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.

Each ‘Spinning Top’ is handmade and unique.
