Collection Gaïa is the debut capsule for atelier oï PRIVÉ, produced in collaboration with Venetian glass experts WonderGlass. The collection’s name, Gaïa, references the personification of Mother Earth within Greek mythology —serving both as inspiration for the inaugural collection and a symbol for atelier oï PRIVÉ itself.
The glass artworks are designed to share a dynamic relationship with light, which come together to transform the static works into vibrant moving pieces. By treating glass here as a solidified liquid, the ensuing interplay between light and glass brings each work to life transforming the solid object into a vibrant moving piece, creating distinct identity, harmony and movement, akin to the natural phenomena that originally inspired them.
Éos, a work inspired by the flow of lava, is designed to represent the transitionary moment when liquid turns solid. The resulting glass pieces are shaped by gravity to create the illusion of a liquid on the brink of overflowing, and combined with the light source, produce a pattern of oscillating shadows.
