Rony Plesl: Sacred Geometry

Internationally acclaimed Czech designer Rony Plesl creates a unique glass installation inspired by the idea of Sacred Geometry, a universal language organizing all visible and invisible reality according to basic geometrical principles. The three identical hexagonal glass tree trunks are an artistic expression of this system. Contrasting to their pure minimalist structure is a glowing forest made of uranium glass that emanates a sublime green fluorescent light, reminding us at the same time of branches and flames. In this way, the installation as a whole pays tribute to the key components of glass making – fire and wood.
