The Champagne Cooler by Jan Kaplický embodies the simplicity of a curve drawn by the hand of an architect. The glass object is a vessel that manifests the designer's elegant solution, treating glass as a partner for expressing the aesthetic and formal idea, whilst the shape has the logic of an architectural element. The transparency and smoothness of the glass material is emphasized by the line flowing freely from the upper edge to the bottom of the opening, with the curve embracing the full shape and picking up momentum as it slides gracefully along the form. „The priority is elegance,“ said Jan Kaplický. The simplicity envisioned in this piece is a token of the neofuturistic tendencies of the acclaimed architect, whose creativity is inspired by natural organisms and personal environment.
