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.
Marea, named for its reference to the rise and fall of the tide, is designed to mirror the impression of light moving on water. The work consists of stacked suspended discs of clear glass featuring radial micro-grooving on the base which casts a shimmering pattern when lit reflectively —an effect reminiscent of sparkling stars on water. The suspended ‘floating’ pendulums above the glass discs are held by the earth’s magnetic forces: casting light downwards and adding to the spectacle of moving light and pattern that replicates rippling water.
