    WonderGlass presents Kosmos, an exhibition that reveals the WonderGlass universe and infinite design possibilities within the glass realm. Hosted at the iconic Istituto dei Ciechi, Kosmos will demonstrate the extent of WonderGlass’ creativity and craftsmanship.  Beautiful product collections created in collaboration with Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Fornasetti will sit alongside works from Dan Yeffet and studiopluz which explore with WonderLab the innovative element of glass as well as its architectural capabilities.  Bound by an ethereal soundscape and kaleidoscopic floor referencing refracted glass, Kosmos transports the visitor to a glittering world.

    Designed by the internationally renowned French duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, “Alcova”, is a collection of handcrafted geometric objects that can sit alone or be grouped to create intimate landscapes.  Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec describe the collection as follows: “The Alcova collection is a series of coloured cast glass geometrical shapes that are organically composed. We approached this project in a brutal and primary way, working with the thickness of the material and letting the process guide us, seeking to preserve all the magic of the ballet of molten glass manipulated by master glassmakers.”

    “Through the Clouds”, designed by iconic Italian decorative Atelier Fornasetti for WonderGlass, takes inspiration from a daydream.  Set  within  a  custom  designed  brass  faceted  pavilion  within  the  Istitutodei  Ciechi,  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.

    In addition to Kosmos, WonderGlasshas developed, crafted and engineered a mechanical dancing light for the latest exhibition at Milan’s Spazio Krizia.  Designed by Raw Edges 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.
