Entry Description

The glass top, formed by several pieces of colored glass, has an external lamp that can project light at the floor or on the wall with a figure of a stylized dragon-fly. The wooden structure would project the shadow of a woman, both figures with an Art Nouveau sense. The rest of the curves provide personality, style and modernism. The inspiration of this piece of art was taken from the shapes in a frieze of a building in Prague, Czechoslovakia, during a trip of the designer in the summer of 2016. The wooden structure brings to modernity shapes from the Art Nouveau. The glass top, as some other parts of the piece were delineated to evoke the shapes of a dragonfly, one of the elements more significant from this art movement in the beginnings of the XX Century.
