MOMENTO MMT35 / MMT50
by NAO TAMURA
There is a moment when a clinging bead of water becomes a droplet. The droplet reflects its surroundings while gathering light within. Momento captures that fleeting beauty and transforms it into a source of light. The elliptical shadow, folding over itself, captures the glassmaker’s spinning technique and creates an ethereal effect. Produced in two variations, MMT35 and MMT50, Momento is a visionary piece of design that holds an elegant balance of form.
