among the pieces on show, the bourroulecs’ alcova is a collection of handcrafted geometric objects in three different shapes. the vessels and alcoves are made of thick glass and can be displayed stalked in groups or individually. at the same space, ‘through the clouds’ by fornasetti is a daydream-like installation blending printed and lacquered metal with blown glass.

in addition to kosmos, a series of 30 moving lamps by raw edges will be presented inside spazio krizia. crafted by wonderglass, ‘horah’ takes its name from the popular israeli dance which serves as the main reference for the installation. as the designer duo mentions, ’the synchronisation of elements has an intriguing factor and provokes a certain emotion and fascination, these sensations we experience as we watch the traditional israeli dancers of the horah.’
