by ATELIER OЇ
Aura is part of the Gaïa Collection by atelier oï x WonderGlass, along with Parhelia, Éos, Marea and Séléné, which all share a process whereby the liquid glass, while molten, is allowed to collapse in on itself. The resulting glass piece has been cut, arranged and illuminated to create three different artworks — the cuts profoundly changing the shape of each work, and how they interact with light.
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.
