Seemingly Incompatible Perspective
“I was inspired by feathers – their lightness and softness. I wanted to capture these characteristics in glass, which is tender and fragile as well as solid and heavy,” says designer Ludmila Žilková.
Lighter than Air
“I played with this juxtaposition. The composition of the installation is based on the movement of a handful of feathers thrown into air,” the designer adds.
Overall 263 pieces of hand-blown components are hanging under the skylight. Most of them shine in radiant clear, but red pieces of glass appear here and there.
Rays of light through Feathers
When daylight shines through the skylight, rays of light play on the surface of glass components while the fluttering shine illuminates the space of the La Praille.
