Entry DescriptionArchitectural and light modeling for the hall of a residential complex Bartolomeo Green Tower.
We filled the hall with aesthetic, highly functional light and worked out the semantic content of the space. We analyzed the volume and density of space, all angles of perception, and movement routes in the hall and developed lighting scenarios. We created the light glass sculpture in our Optical Metaphor glassblowing facility. All modules of the chandelier are made in the form of glass leaves, which are painted in natural tones and assembled in the form of a whirlwind to emphasize the Green Tower's connection with nature. We manually created glass elements and gave them different finishes: mirror, matte, and transparent natural shades. Each leaf is situated at a different height. The chandelier complimented the play of light with shadow patterns on the floor, giving the feeling of walking in a shady park.
Individual work with glass in our glass-blowing workshop allows you to maximize the play of light and shadow. And the light allows you to maximize the space and architecture.
