the romantic scenes of the venetian cityscape glistening on the evening water is expressed through a series of glass lighting vessels.
the ‘flow(t)’ chandelier by nao tamura is the embodiment of the real world and fantasy, whereby the colors of the blue-green hues
of the venetian lagoon are illuminated. conceived for wonderglass, each blown glass piece enjoys its own sculptural shape
and is displayed in multiples.
