under the rule of sultan selim the third, the ottoman empire adopted the venetian filigree glass technique. soon, the style evolved, eventually translating into çeşm-i bülbül. the glass, often given as gifts or used for tablewares, features a distinct white and blue striped surface. turkish industrial designer rezzan hasoglu reinterprets the aesthetic’s culture heritage, and production technique, in her ‘moirai glass lamps’ collection. the lamps are currently on display at 2015 salone del mobile
