Milan: FF 2013 – Wonderglass

Milan: FF 2013 – Wonderglass. Wonderglass is a new international company with headquarters in London and in Venice, dedicated to the production of glass chandeliers.  For the official launch Wonderglass drew upon the time-honored experience of Venetian master glass-blowers and the contemporary touch offered by artists and designers of international renown, capable of interpreting the beauty of glass in a spectacular, innovative manner paired with the most advanced technological research on lighting.  The Wonderglass products showcased traced an imaginary journey through Venice, reflections of light are multiplied on the waters of the lagoon, while unexpected shapes amaze with their intricate creativity.
Above.  Zaha Hadid – Swarm: Collaboration Established & Sons—Wonderglass. The Swarm chandelier is a composition of black crystal volumes suspended in dynamic forms. The intricately layered spatial composition of the chandelier presents itself as a unified whole; it does not presuppose any proportional system, nor does it privilege symmetry.

Wonderglass: Nao Tamura – Flow(T). The reflections of the Venetian cityscape glistening on the evening water hints at an imaginary city below the moving surface. There is a border between the world under and the land above. In the city of Venice, where the real world and fantasy coexists, this chandelier is the embodiment of the beauty of dual worlds.  Flow[T] is a contemporary chandelier inspired by the colors of the Venetian lagoon and customized to the desires of each owner. Each piece enjoys its own shape, and in multiples, they create a sculptural display of lighting.

Wonderglass:  Nendo – Black Bat: Collaboration Bisazza—Wonderglass. A chandelier reminiscent of a colony of bats hanging upside-down from a tree branch or the ceiling of a cave. Evenly spaced glass shades blown by Murano glass artisans enclose LEDs, and cast their light downwards. Bases can be connected to create a large colony, or removed to make a smaller one.
