Jan Falta`s crystalline humour

On the line

Czech glass artist Jan Falta combines masterly glass craftmanship and humour for a surprising effect – his crystal glass tumblers, produced by Marienberg, are a true flow of inspiration. Just imagine drinking something nice out of these masterpieces, telling stories among friends…

These works of Jan Falta have been showcased at the recent Maison&Objet.

Crystallized project – Tokujin Yoshioka @ Maison&Objet


Tokujin Yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka`s designs have always been positioned somewhere in the undefined region between poetry and materialism. Indeed, he begins his design exploration by working with materials in the strangest forms and techniques, and so he ends up with most unexpected results.

To no surprise, this year Tokujin is one of the chosen designers of the year (créateur now! design à vivre 2012) at Maison&Objet in Paris.

He presents his explorations into the realm of the frozen water, named “Crystallized project” – the crystallized painting series grown by the vibration of music by Frederic Chopin and also the crystallized chair “VENUS – Natural crystal chair” and the crystallized painting in aquariums.
