Here's some more information from Case-Real and E&Y:

For edition HORIZONTAL / E&Y

Branches fall and tangle with the ones below, gently swinging in the air. I felt a kind of beauty, within the fragile balance a coincidence can create.

My interest towards this kind of beauty gave birth to the "in the sky", an object which shall frame the space with richness.

- edition HORIZONTAL / E&Y -

A multiple is an object. An object meaning something. Objects inherit their true values, meanings, and often provide mental satisfaction when taken in one's hand. Without prioritizing function, to give the joy to possess, by creating an object appealing to one's inner depth.

In the Sky by CASE-REAL

And to give a view, a horizon, where various people and objects are connected side by side. "edition HORIZONTAL" is a new collection and an announcement made by E&Y in collaboration with various designers.
