Colorful Cast Glass

June 21, 2022

Inspired by the desert landscape, Dune is an interplay in color, texture, and contrast. Designers Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno used the Incalmo technique with Dune, a process that was first practiced in the Islamic world in the Middle Ages. Incalmo demands precision by fusing two or more blown glass elements together to create an object. In Dune, “a soft pocket is created in the incalmo of the two different [glass] slabs, to accommodate an LED diffuser.” Cargo belts are then used to secure the lamps to the ceiling. Dune is available in a variety of colors and two designs.
