Eden is a kinetic sculpture, composed by small floating vases that celebrate natural beauty and balance.

The project is inspired by the delicate harmony found in nature, where each part needs of the other in order to be balanced.

The pieces are constructed of glass tubes and handcrafted solid brass components. The weight comes form a raw piece of marble in the base. The lightness of these simple elements highlights the beauty of the flowers and leaves, which truly complete the design. Gently swinging by air currents, Eden becomes a gracious presence in a room.

This work is born from a reflection on the necessity of design to create thoughtful pieces that interact with us and our environment, losing the superfluous, searching to bring joy through essential elements.
