One off creation produced as prototypes for “Spirit of Resurgence” exhibition, Venice Glass Week 2020. Prototypes limited in number, product rollout under review.
WonderGlass’ Slump table lamp is a triumph of texture richness on a bespoke Carrara marble base. The mould has been specifically manufactured to bend the matter into a curved single glass fit. This right shape allows the light rays to filter through armoniously and concentrate the brightness at the front tip. A well distributed glow sparks through the object thanks to the smooth texture, generating an elegant and cohesive effect.
