We love nature, and all the phenomenon it creates. Therefore, we are fascinated by the refraction and reflection of water we see under the sea, and the ceiling of the pool house. The light go through the surface of the moving water, create beautiful patent composed of sharp light lines, laying on the wall.
We want to re-create this amazing beauty through our design, and bring this relaxing atmosphere into people’s home.
Ripple is a project studying the beauty of glass material. While a focus beam of light projected through a gently rotating mouth-blown glass dome, shadow and light form a breathtaking, ever-changing pattern, where the aesthetic goes beyond the material itself.
The process of making this project includes both tradition glass craft skills and modern production engineering of the moving parts. The duo work closely with materials and found the beauty of glass lies in the uneven surface results from mouth-blowing process, while the craft skill makes the beauty of glass frozen in time, the elegant rotating movement brings the flow of material back to life, as if the dome exists with an uncertainty.
Ripple had won the first prize of Design Report Award and 3rd Prize of Salone Satellite Award during the Milan Design Week 2013 in April.
