Dezeen promotion: a chandelier of glass pendants that resemble fishing floats by designer Nao Tamura will be displayed at design brand Luminaire's exhibition space to coincide with Design Miami next month.
Tamura's Flow(t) glassware comes in five droplet shapes and each is mounted on a black rod, reminiscent of plastic floats used by anglers.
The frosted glass is coloured with green-blue tones representing the Venetian Lagoon.
When hung together on thin threads, the pendants appear to float in midair on an invisible surface.
Here's some further details from Luminaire:
Nao Tamura's designs eschew convention and status quo. Luminaire is proud to exhibit Tamura's work during this year's Art Basel-Design Miami installations. This being the second time Luminaire displays Nao's work during Art Basel. Previously, Nao worked on a window design for the Miami Design District location.
This year Luminaire will be presenting the Flow(t) chandelier. The designer, inspired by the colours of the Venetian lagoons reflecting the city lights, produced the chandelier embodying the beauty of the city world and its fantastical reflections in the lagoon. This poetic imagery and interpretation inspired Luminaire to include it in its third instalment of Design+World, an opportunity to showcase good design interpreted through different cultural approaches and mindsets.
Nao Tamura's quest to break with conventions brings us a new mindset and provides a unique and refreshing point of view. During Art Basel, Tamura's contemporary chandelier will create a sculptural display of lighting set in play with the crystal collection also in exhibit.
We invite everyone to come and see the Flow(t) at Luminaire Lab, and experience Nao's uncanny ability to find the emotional connection between her design and the audience.
