    Venice Architecture Biennale 2018: Kosmogonos

    KOSMOGONOS - CHURCH OF OSPEDALETTO 

    Following on from the successful installation Kosmos at the 2018 Salone del Mobile, WonderGlass and studiopluz collaborated once again to present ‘Kosmogonos’, an exhibition that creates a world inspired by the wonders of the universe through the prism of glass. 

    Run from May 23rd – June 23rd during DESIGN.VE and the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – Biennale Architettura 2018, ‘Kosmogonos’ presented a series of glass works inspired by deep space, and the emotions experienced while gazing at the night sky. Themes including gravity, utopia and geometry were explored through a range of works that incorporate the perfection of symmetry juxtaposed against the material inconsistency of glass. 

    In addition, Horah, an installation of dancing lights designed by London based duo Raw-Edges offered a convivial spectacle

    Housed within the iconic Venetian Church of Ospedaletto in association with Zuecca Projects, the exhibition combined glass with sound and light to make the visitor question what the modern city will be like and how the universe can stimulate design.

    Milan Design Week 2018: WonderGlass x Raw-Edges at Spazio Krizia

    HORAH - SPAZIO KRIZIA

    In addition to WonderGlass' shimmering installation Kosmos at the Istituto dei Ciechi, WonderGlass developed and crafted a unique series displayed at the Spazio Krizia building during Milan Design Week.

    Raw-Edges - Horah - Designed for this solo spectacle, Horah reflects on the theme of light in dialog with one of the essential aspects of contemporary living: sociability. Inspired by Horah, the Israeli dance, the London-based design duo will be exploring an ongoing theme of repetition with a lighting installation that is imbued with an essential quality in the dance: conviviality.

    The 30 piece illuminated limited edition glass installation was on view at Spazio Krizia (Via Daniele Manin 19, Milan) during Milan Design Week and is now available through Project B Gallery.

    Raw-Edges - Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay founded the design studio Raw-Edges after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2007. Colours, patternmaking and movement form a large part of the DNA at Raw Edges. The ideas of energy and provocative illusion are aimed at bringing out the kid in all of us. Raw-Edges’ witty and inventive approach has led to great collaborations with international companies including Vitra, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney and Airbnb. Following their work, the studio was awarded several prestigious awards including Designers of the Future by Design by Miami/ Basel, Wallpaper* awards and Elle Deco international Design Award and their designs were acquired for the permanent collections at international museums, including the MoMA in New-York.

    Milan Design Week 2018: Kosmos

    KOSMOS

     

    At Salone del Mobile 2018, WonderGlass presented Kosmos, a shimmering universe of glass featuring new collections from Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Fornasetti as well as WonderLab’s collaborations with Dan Yeffet and studiopluz.

    Bound by an ethereal soundscape and kaleidoscopic floor referencing refracted glass, Kosmos transported visitors to a glittering world.

     

    Featured Works Included

    Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec - Alcova - Designed by the internationally renowned French duo Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, “Alcova”, is a collection of handcrafted geometric objects that can sit alone or be grouped to create intimate landscapes.

    Fornasetti - Through the Clouds - Designed by iconic Italian decorative Atelier Fornasetti for WonderGlass, the work takes inspiration from a daydream. Delicate glass clouds floats above the viewer, suggesting a different point of view. Obelisks protrude from the clouds, a nod to the ancient Egyptians who worshiped the obelisk as a symbol of ‘Ra’ the sun god, creator and giver of all life. Produced by hand, “Through the Clouds” blends printed and lacquered metal with blown glass; the whimsical design and fine nature of the work awakening the love of glass that has been embedded within the Fornasetti DNA since the 1940s, and demonstrating both Fornasetti and WonderGlass’ artisanal approach, and dedication to craftsmanship.

    Dan Yeffet - Prism - WonderGlass’ laboratory of innovation and technology WonderLab demonstrated creativity and craftsmanship with a selection of architectural glass innovations including an iridescent, malleable cast glass bench by adventurous Israeli designer Dan Yeffet.

    studiopluz - Echo - Inspired by the origins of the universe, Echo is an illuminated sculpture comprised of a series of glass discs fusing glass with sound to produce a stimulating soundscape, evocative of the gravitational waves coming from black holes.

    J&PEG - Invisible Cities - A highlight of Kosmos was the stop-motion film Invisible Cities by artistic duo J&PEG. A surreal tale of a glass ball lost in a magical world that both celebrates the utopian vision of the city and the role of glass within architecture and urban environments.   

    studiopluz & WonderLab - Invisible Cities (Origins) - The utopian vision of the city in the film Invisible Cities was brought to lifeas a glowing glass city composed of coloured glass bricks and cubes of varying sizes.

    WonderLab - Kaleidescope - An illuminated floor mosaic comprised of coloured glass hexagons further demonstrated the cast glass capabilities of our WonderLab for large scale Architectural projects.

    CABINET OF CURIOSITIES

     

    At Maison & Objet 2018, WonderGlass presented their conceptual ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ installation from Friday January 19th to Tuesday January 23rd 2018.

    Pushing the boundaries of creativity, surprise and imagination, the ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ featured some of our finest works and invited visitors to look beyond the light and view up close the capabilities of WonderLab, the laboratory of innovation and technology at WonderGlass,

    The installation, divided into quadrants, showcases an object framed against large backlit photographs created in the Italian Dolomites. The images, part of an update to the WonderGlass DNA, a contrast of nature and human creation, featured brilliant smoke clouds of hot pink and azure blue, or the idiosyncratic addition of colourful balls to dramatically evoke the union of dream and reality in exquisite creations. The layering of object and visual art in the cabinets provided the optical illusion of an installation that spanned well beyond the dimensions of the space.

    Featured works included:

    Marcel Wanders Calliope - inspired by Japanese calligraphy and created from hand-blown Murano glass, the floating, illuminating pendants have an adaptable design that can expand to create a full ceiling and room installations as either a cluster or as a single element. 

    WonderLab - Brick - beneath Calliope, the ground was brought to life with cast glass bricks infused with a variety of colours, demonstrating the ability of our WonderLab artisans to incorporate glass creations into projects of any scale.

    Claesson Koivisto Rune - Grappa - creates beauty through variation within repetition. The lights are arranged like a bunch of grapes on a vine, formed of similar shapes yet each is slightly varied in size. The forms are made of translucent glass, allowing the LED light source to glow from within and can be customised to allow for different combinations and arrangements.

    Dan Yeffet Hollow - on display in smoky grey and in blue, the floor sculptures make light their object in the context of architecture and glass. This design captures light like never before and shapes it as a basic element. The design interprets a dialogue between natural elements, traditional design and technology and takes it centre stage accentuating the space it occupies and bringing matter to the forefront

    Nao Tamura Lab Edition - inspired by the moment when the sun hits the surface of a lagoon and how this creates a lens effect in water. Tamura was particularly inspired by how this effect captures a ‘spark’ then transforms into a source of light.

    Hideki Yoshimoto Rise - Focuses on the organic shapes of water bubbles and the refraction of light. Supported by WonderLab, Yoshimoto challenged the complex way light transmits and reflects inside different materials, resulting in a mesmerising visual effect. Yoshimoto’s work seeks to capture a dynamic moment in time and is reminiscent of air rising through the water, suggesting the possibilities of life below; a presence that we cannot see but are inspired to imagine

    The exhibition is aptly named "Luce e Materia" (Light and Matter) and celebrates the perpetual order of simple elements which are the essence of WonderGlass' creations.

    The essence of the showcase is design and art — in this context Hollow by Dan Yeffet captures light like never before and sculpts it as a basic element: a dialogue between natural elements, traditional design and technology.

    The artist, Nicola Magrin, adds his own essence to the exhibition - ethereal watercolours inspired by WonderGlass' DNA. Light breaks secure sense and aesthetic meaning to pigments and water. With its glass creations WonderGlass similarly brings through its own light.

The concept is based on the four categories coined 150 years ago by Gottfied Semper in an essay dedicated to the basic elements of an ideal house used as an archetype of architecture beyond place and time. Here the categories have been increased to eight: stacking, weaving, folding, connecting, molding, blowing, engraving, and tiling, and constitute a grid through which to interpret contemporary architecture and design.

    Chelsea Boy | By Michael Young

    JAMES IRVINE: UN INGLESE A MILANO

    Created by Maria Cristina Didero and Marco Sammicheli.

     

    MUSEO DEL 900, Milan

    "The act of living and working needs a balance between the roots and the visions: these are the reasons why James Irvine decided to move to Milan after being educated in the United Kingdom. Irvine’s design is clearly British but with some relevant infused elements of Italian project culture. Milan, art, architecture, and a few places have become a network of endless inspiration: the city itself an ethnographic field evolving from a personal mania to a concept, and finally to industrial design products."

    CHELSEA BOY

    Bar Basso remembered the late and great James Irvine with a new gin and tonic glass designed by Michael Young. Michael Young designed a gin & tonic tumbler glass in memory of his good friend. The project by Maria Cristina Didero and Maurizio Stoccheto has created Chelsea Boy, a clean and functional Wonderglass tumbler; a memory of the creative designer who left us all too soon. This was a unique opportunity to toast James’s brilliance in the city he called home.

    Landscape by Elizabeth Leriche | M&O 2014

    ELSEWHERE IN NATURE

    An invitation to distant inner journeys. A desire to get away and a wish for openness to the world are animating design and the art of living. Traveling coolness is looking for new lands, unseen vistas, far-off spots where adventure and wonder are at hand. Globetrotters and nomads, amblers and bushwhackers are heading out to discover the Other and sketching the shifting cartography of a mobile, fluid, cosmopolitan and more human world. Guaranteed disorientation.

     

    VIDEO OF PREVIEW

     

    LANDSCAPE by Elizabeth Leriche 

    The soothing contemplation of landscapes feeds our gaze and our mind. A quest for getaways, for higher ground is opening the doors of creativity. We are transcribing the reverie of a poetic, sensitive nature. Between the force of material things and evanescent lightness, between immenseness and microcosms, a physical and spiritual escape is teleporting our imaginations toward new horizons. Travel logs in lands of feeling.

    WonderGlass' production traces an imaginary journey through Venice: Jaime Hayon stages a contemporary carnival with traditional masks, Nao Tamura encounterd a multitude of buoys floating on the horizon while Nendo uses light to describe the appearance of shadows lurking behind the hidden corners of the Venetian “calle”, whereas Zaha Hadid creates a flock of crystals.
