I fell in love with these beautiful Flow lights by Nao Tamura for Wonderglass last weekend, poetically described thus:
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 colours of the Venetian lagoon and customised to the desires of each owner. Each piece enjoys its own shape, and in multiples, they create a sculptural display of lighting.
From Trendhunter, there was more:
Nao Tamura Creates a Glass Lamp Inspired by the Venetian Cityscape that is unlike any other landscape on Earth.
In order to capture the surreal serenity of a city half submerged below water, the designer gave each glass orb a dip-dyed effect using shades of aqua, teal and turquoise. Each glass vessel has its own individual shape, alternating in width and height which, when paired with the ombre shading technique, emulates the Venetian vista almost perfectly. As they delicately hang in the air, the lamps looks as though they are floating, an effect that is enhanced by the way the light dims towards the darker bottoms of the bulbs.
Nao Tamura’s Flow(t) glass lamp design is a suspended sculptural work of artistic influence.
There is a gallery of stills on Trendhunter to look at and also this short Youtube video, below, has some stunning images albeit with a mildly irritating soundtrack.
Stunning. I want …
