Where have my eyeglasses gone?
In the name of irony and experimentation, Ron Arad’s first work for Venini is a collection of three vases that joins two worlds — blown glass and eyeglass frames. The idea is quite original and unique. “When I’m asked where my ideas come from, I say they’re everywhere: the problem isn’t finding them, but understanding how to prioritise them,” explains the designer. Instead, the approach is that of a designer: the blown glass by master glass blowers inside the eyeglasses is contained in its expansion by the metal frame at the base. www.venini.com
