by ATELIER OЇ
Éos by atelier oï x WonderGlass, inspired by the flow of lava, is designed to represent the transitionary moment when liquid turns solid. The resulting glass pieces are shaped by gravity to create the illusion of a liquid on the brink of overflowing, and combined with the light source, produce a pattern of oscillating shadows.
atelier oï was founded in 1991 in La Neuveville, Switzerland, by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond. The name oï, derived from the Russian word 'troïka', a team of three, conveys the dynamism and holistic energy generated by a trio. atelier oï is the result of an alliance rooted in humanity and art alike. The founders' deep involvement with architecture, design and naval construction, as well as the encounter with charismatic personalities such as Alberto Sartoris and Ettore Sottsass, have shaped atelier oï's philosophy.
