Frosted Ombre’ glass chair
Frosted Ombre’ glass chair by Germans Ermičs
Germans Ermičs was born in Riga, Latvia and has maintained his design studio in Amsterdam since 2014. His recent works are refined and ethereal pieces of glass furniture and immersive installations, wielding light, space, and color to catalyze a shift in how we perceive objects.
With the utilitarian function and omnipresence of glass in our daily lives, we rarely notice its impact on us and its poetic potential. In Ermičs’s designs glass becomes the stage for exquisite color treatments and experiences; soft and frosted to blur the edges of form, ombré, to gently draw your eye across the surface, or mirrored, to reflect and stimulate the space you occupy.

Ombré Glass Chair is a tribute to Shiro Kuramata. His iconic Glass Chair (1976) is one of the most influential furniture designs of the 20th century. A breakthrough concept, and one that is profoundly true to its material, Glass Chair set a precedent for the direction of design in glass, in which the simplicity, transparency, and seeming weightlessness of the material are emphasized. The Glass Chair exemplifies fascination with immateriality and transparency. Employing the revolutionary, new industrial product Photobond 100, which cleanly bonds glass, Kuramata was able to join six sheets of glass without screws, mounts or reinforcements thus eliminating all traces of structure. Formed solely from planes of clear glass, the chair’s solid state seems to dissolve. Almost invisible, these planes, without tangible support, hang in the air.
