Entry Description

The different glasses with organic forms project (on the floor or at the ceiling) the shapes from a butterfly’s wings. The solid wooden structure emulates the branches of a tree. Based on the organic forms of tree branches and insects present in the Art Noveau current of the beginning of the last century, this piece tries to emulate, with a distinguished and modern touch, those styles, communicating a very sensual artistic mood, playing with the light and crystal reflections to produce colors projected, either on the floor or at the ceiling. It is an art element that can be an excellent conversation starter and a favorite for ecologists, art lovers and naturalists. The structural pieces of wood are processed with Italian high tech machinery and hand finished by expert artisans.
