Polarities

Marcel Wanders Studio

"Utilizing and combining the techniques of Murano, we have introduced opposing concepts and underscored beautiful, poetic contrasts."

Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders Studio

 

Art and design, poetry and technique. Polarities creates a bridge between constraints and possibilities, formulating a creative dimension that represents and identifies a powerful union of intent. Glass intertwines new trajectories and becomes a symbol of intangible dynamics, such as love and hate, past and future, universally recognized opposites addressed since antiquity by philosophers and poets, East and West. Dichotomy and interdependence...this is the eternal dualism behind the Polarities collection of luminous sculptures, created in a collaboration between Barovier&Toso and Marcel Wanders Studio. The collection, in a limited, numbered edition, is composed of six models, each in a series of just 21 pieces. In blown glass, sculpted by hand, they all have a square stone base containing a lighting component. The light makes the sculptures reveal a dual character, literally generating a transformation and offering a completely new interpretation of the work.
