Sacred Geometry by Rony Plesl
London Design Festival 2019
Client: Bolety & Czech Centre London
Photography: Ed Reeve
Czech designer Rony Plesl´s unique glass installation drew inspiration from the idea of Sacred Geometry, a universal language organising all visible and invisible reality according to basic geometrical principles.
The three identical hexagonal glass tree trunks were an artistic expression of this system. Contrasting with these pure minimalist forms, a glowing forest made of uranium glass radiated a sublime green fluorescent light, evoking branches and flames. In this way, the installation paid tribute to the key components of glass making – fire and wood.
