Milan 2014: lamps by Nao Tamura that look like fishing floats are shown alongside lighting by Zaha Hadid and John Pawson in this movie, filmed for British company Wonderglass in Milan earlier this month (+ movie).
These included the Flow(t) glass pendants by New York designer Nao Tamura, reminiscent of plastic floats used by anglers.
The lamps come in five droplet shapes, made from gradated frosted glass and mounted on black rods.
Half of the lights were coloured with green-blue tones to represent the Venetian Lagoon, while the others were decorated with white gradients.
Appearing to float on an invisible surface, the pendants were hung in a line to form a chandelier for the Milan exhibition, which Tamura also designed.
Wonderglass also installed the strings of glass bubbles designed by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune in the space.
The blown glass balls, called Grappa, were hung in vertical columns between three and five long, mixing up the two slightly different shapes.
Architect Zaha Hadid's Luma designs were made from rippled glass that appeared to cascade from the light source and disperse on a horizontal plane.
Simple glass cylinders sat within a second layer, which spread into glass disks towards the base, to form the Sleeve lamps by architect John Pawson. These were hung in two rows in front of the curtain.
All the pieces were created using traditional glass-blowing techniques at facilities in Venice and displayed earlier this month inside the former palazzo that now houses the Istituto dei Ciechi.
