Patrick Heide Contompoary Art: The Sea is the Limit Jan 14th

WonderGlass Jan 20th-24th

WonderGlass will present the installation “Rise and Drift” by Tangent, the London-based design brand established by innovative designer Hideki Yoshimoto at Maison et Objet, January 2017.

The installation“Rise and Drift” by Tangent for WonderGlass focuses on the organic shapes of water bubbles and the refraction of light. Tangent have also explored the complex way light transmits and reflects inside different materials.

This work captures a dynamic moment and is reminiscent of air rising through the water hinting life underneath, a presence that we cannot see but just imagine.The display captures natural bubbles that contrast inside solid, geometric shapes. When light is casted, it transmits and reflects in a complex way inside the material, resulting in a beautiful visual effect.

The different fixtures created by Tangent for the installation can be used as space dividers, lights, or chandeliers that cast beautiful shadows with light, including sunlight.

For Maison et Objet 2017, WonderGlass will also preview Luma by Zaha Hadid, a sculptural composition of tubular segments which subtly diffuse light through organic shapes which effortlessly celebrate the unrivalled logic and beauty found in nature. Each individual segment to the piece has been handblown in Murano.

First seen in 2014, the 2017 edition follows an ongoing liaison with Zaha Hadid’s team to create technical superiority as well as a more refined shape which in turn, throws a softer glow. Luma is now available to specify for both commercial and domestic markets.
