This beautiful biomorphic piece is not only special in form, lending it a special ability in light refraction - but its also beautiful in colour.
The smokey, deep brown bears the a hint of red in its tone, its perhaps how you might imagine the colour of cherry chocolate to be ... if the colour was transmuted to and captured in glass.
Under rays of sunshine, the curvy organic forms create stunning refraction's, coloured beams that dance across the walls as the sun moves across the sky.
An elegant piece to suit a room with Mid Century, Modernist or Contemporary inspired decor.
A BIT OF HISTORY
Železný Brod is an old glass-producing town founded in the eleventh century. It was originally known as Brod ("ford") or Brodek ("little ford"). Železný ("iron") was added to its name in the fourteenth century, alluding to the town's steelworks. The town's main industry is represented by producers of blow-moulded glass, as well as that of jewellers.
The Železný Brod (ZBS) glassworks was created in 1948 as a result of nationalisation, at the time, this was made up of 9 glass factories in the town. ZBS being particularly well known for its free-form organic vases and bowls designed by Miroslav Klinger.
