Radiant by Patricia Urquiola represents the materialization of light in glass. The seemingly haphazard, interlocking deep cuts and oscillating cusps achieve a rich visual quality in the glass material. The transparent matter is enlivened by the prismatic quality of glass, which changes between mirroring effect and refraction and thus endows the clear substance with color. The piece displays clever design in the way how the perfect circular base is set into contrast against the intricate irregular exterior surface of the walls, which engage sight as much as the sense of touch.
