Shared glass was a workshop defined by the shared experience of MFA.Design students from VCUQatar, the residents from FABRICA Design department and the glass maker Massimo Lunardon (July 2011).
The collection is the outcome of group research interrogating glass objects of varied ethnic and historical origins including: Lebanese, Italian, Egyptian and French.
Earlier this fall Troika introduced their new commission 'Thixotropes' at London's iconic shopping centre, Selfridges. The sculpture consists of 320 metres of led banding making up 8 separate parts that are spinning at a speed of 360 rpm. The effect is an ethereal light sculpture that confronts busy holiday shoppers as they franticly search Selfridges for the perfect gift.
Fendi has invited designer Elisa Strozyk and artist Sebastian Neeb to create this year's Design Performance project at Design Miami. Elisa and Sebastian's collaboration has generated a dreamlike installation in which the materials of traditional craftwork have undergone a magical metamorphosis.
