NENDO – Rain caught in a bottle


How to catch a rain ? How to describe 20 different types of rain?

Design Studio Nendo created a series of bottles for an installation ( 2014 Fall edition of Maison & Objet in Paris ). The main idea was to create the relationship between language and design. “Rain” was chosen for its many nuances in Japanese, a language that has dozens of words for rain depending on the condition and time of day.

20 clear acrylic bottles were lined-up, each containing a different kind of ‘rain’.

MOULDS by Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus

Two young creative czech designers Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus made it again! After a spectacular Neverending Story they designed lights pendants called Moulds.

It is not hard to guess from where they get their inspiration. Czech Republic’s design is strongly connected with its glassblowing history. It would be silly not to take advantage of that!

Moulds are produced by Lasvit

Rene Roubicek for Lasvit

 Rene Roubicek for Lasvit

René Roubíček

René Roubíček (born 1922) is a Czech glass icon. Glass art as an independent art discipline was actually born in Czechoslovakia and it was first introduced to the world by Mr. Roubíček, over half a century ago. His spatial dimensional abstract compositions combining metal and glass caused a sensation at the 1958 Expo in Brussels Roubíček subsequently won the Grand Prix Expo award. His work is represented in many major galleries worldwide.


“And Why Not!”

René Roubíček´s chandelier designed for Lasvit named by its author “And why not!” refers to his lifelong experimentation and searching compositions and forms incarnated in glass. The chandelier´s emotionally intense sculptural form resembles a flash and is an evolution of Roubíček´s core designs based on dynamic abstraction. Light gliding on large smoothly polished surfaces while absorbed by the mass of the glass creates a unique atmosphere.
