by ATELIER OЇ
Marea by atelier oï x WonderGlass, named for its reference to the rise and fall of the tide, is designed to mirror the impression of light moving on water. The work consists of stacked suspended discs of clear glass featuring radial micro-grooving on the base which casts a shimmering pattern when lit reflectively — an effect reminiscent of sparkling stars on water.
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.
