Lab Edition is a symbol of the connection between nature and man-made objects, inspired by reflections that occur in the Venetian lagoon. Recalling alchemic instruments, light is captured by the liquid inside the spheres and reflected onto mirrored disks, transforming it into a magical dazzle. When the sun shines on the surface of a lagoon, it creates a lens resemblance. This effect takes a “spark” and transforms it into a light source. A ripple of light: Lab Edition captures this moment of ephemeral beauty.
