At Maison et Objet Paris, WonderGlass presents two dreamy designs in collaboration with Zaha Hadid studio and Hideki Yoshimoto.
January 24th, 2017
WonderGlass was born in 2013 when Maurizio and Christian Mussati came together to establish their vision of creating modern, glass light sources that combined age-old craftsmanship with the genius thinking of creatives from the worlds of architecture, art and fashion.
Despite its short history, the company has already worked with the likes of Claesson Koivisto Rune, Zaha Hadid studio, Jaime Hayon and more – all of whom share WonderGlass’ vision of creating dream-like objects.
Their latest designs have just been shown at Maison et Objet Paris. The first is an installation called Rise and Drift by Tangent, a London-based design brand established by innovative designer Hideki Yoshimoto. The installation captures the dynamic moment air bubbles rise through water. It shows the refraction of light through the glass, looking at how it transmits and reflects in a complex way inside the material, and the beautiful visual effect that results. The different fixtures created by Tangent for the installation can be used as space dividers, lights or chandeliers.
WonderGlass also previewed the new version of Luma by Zaha Hadid, a sculptural composition of tubular segments that subtly diffuse light through organic shapes. Each individual segment to the piece has been handblown in Murano.
First shown in 2014, the 2017 edition comes with greater technical capabilities and a more refined shape that in turn, gives a softer glow. Luma is now available for both commercial and domestic markets.
