Deriva Glass Collection by Cristina Celestino
Updated: Jan 29, 2020
Designed by Cristina Celestino of Studio Attico, Deriva is a collection of contemporary totems inspired by the proportions and forms of fishing floats, and is made from blown glass using a lume technique.
Presented out of scale in different shapes and colours, the volumes are suspended in a membrane of borosilicate glass. The composition, amplified through the transparent membrane, changes the visual perception of the object, creating an optical illusion. Saturated colours enhances the borosilicate glass in its various surface treatments, alternating through sandblasted translucency, to transparent and opaque glass. For added functionality, the vase can be used as a small aquarium.
