Sculptural Bubbles from Spain
Spanish architect Marta Armengol has created a collection of lights and vases called the Four Folds
Spanish architect Marta Armengol has created a collection of lights and vases called the Four Folds, which are made of borosilicate glass that has been blown into imperfect shapes.
These shapes of glass are scultural gems for sure!
Created for Brussels gallery Maniera, the series consists of clear, prefabricated glass pipes of various diameters that Armengol has manipulated into three lamps and one vase.
“The idea was to combine two states of the same material,” Armengol told Dezeen.
“So each piece includes, on one hand, the pipe in its original state, and on the other hand, the material blown, swollen, folded and deformed. The deformed parts emerge from the raw pipes as a metaphor of the execution process, as if they had bloomed like a flower.”
