„Bamboo sculpture“ - L 6000 x W 900 x OH 1500 mm
Weight: approx. 400Kg
Glass: artistic hand-blown glass
Area: Bar

A sculptural form inspired by woody stems of natural bamboo. The section of a bamboo straw has became a substantial source of inspiration for this design. Glass bamboo pipes form a monumental composition swelling in space. The stems are made of hand crafted blown glass with subtle grooving and organic cutting at the edges. The detail of cutting introduces an element of natural dynamics into the whole sculpture. Such effects are enhanced by light which concentrates within the glass mass and delicately outlines its organic shapes. The bamboo sculpture is a sort of light oasis in the space of architecture.
