Milan 2013: Deriva Glass Collection
Stylus is at Milan Design Week this week and will be checking out the Deriva Glass collection, the latest offering from Italian design studio Design Attico.
Inspired by the proportions and shapes of floating fish markers, the blown coloured glass elements are suspended within a clear shell of toughed borosilicate glass, a material often used in science due to its resilient properties. The collection can be used as alone as decoration, as vases or as an aquarium – a reference to the inspiration behind the design.
Minimalist shapes and scientific materials are being used by many designers to create technically styled products for the home. For similar products, see Stylus report Lab Look.
The Deriva Glass Collection is on show at Past/Future – Enzo Mari and Contemporary Italian Design exhibition at Amaranto Boutique during Milan Design Week.
