Much in the spirit of Vissio’s collaborative approach, pieces in the Precarius series rely on collective participation to maintain stability. There are no fasteners or glue holding the piece’s elements together. It’s the balance of forces that allows the piece to be more than the sum of its parts.
Precarious features an undoubtedly sensual form, with the rounded glass draping over the metal plates. The work juxtaposes the glinting fragility of exceptional quality glass with the surface texture of steel or brass plates bases that maintain the sphere aloft. Each glass bubble is individually blown by a team of Nouvel Studio artisans onto the base meaning that no two are ever exactly alike.
Precarious is available in three variations, 1, 2, and 3 and in grey or amber color. Precarious pieces are limited to a production of 8 plus two studio proofs.
