by ATELIER OЇ
Designed by the Swiss transdisciplinary studio atelier oï, Marea, so named for its reference to the rise and fall of the tide, evokes the impression of light moving through bodies of water. Stacked suspended discs of clear glass feature radial micro grooving along their base, a pattern that when illuminated creates the shimmering reminiscent of a night sky in oceanic reflectance.
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.
