The Franz Mayer Museum and Nouvel present InVisible. Glass Design, an exhibition of over 500 glass pieces that offers a precise look at the technical, formal and stylistic possibilities of glass, one of this fascinating material.
The Isla vase is the result of the collaboration between Nouvel and Julie Richoz, a collection of blown glass vases that celebrates the manual skills of the blowers and the incredible chromatic richness of this material.
Edgar Orlaineta’s Katsinas produced by Nouvel reference the wooden dolls “Kachinas” originally made in communities from the Southwest of USA as ritual objects. Orlaineta discovered these traditional effigies while researching American mid-century design, specifically Charles and Ray Eames and Alexander Girard's work. These three designers collected themselves kachinas.
