Enchanted forms

Step inside WonderGlass’ universe of glass innovation, Kosmos

For Salone del Mobile, WonderGlass is presenting new collections that continue to push the boundaries of this fascinating material, including a set of geometric objects in cast coloured glass by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. ‘We approached this project in a brutal and primary way’ say the duo.

Inside Istituto dei Ciechi, the brand will showcase its mesmerising panorama of glass, accompanied by an inspiring soundtrack and kaleidoscopic flooring. In this film by creative studio J&PEG, Invisible Cities, the essence of the installation titled Kosmos comes to life through the story of a glass ball lost in a magical translucent world.

Elsewhere in Kosmos, Atelier Fornasetti will create a brass pavilion with a cloud-lined interior made of printed and lacquered metal with blown glass. Meanwhile architectural experiments by Israeli designer Dan Yeffet produce iridescent furniture, and studiopluz creates a soundscape through glass discs.
