Designed by Cristina Celestino, the Laguna glassware collection from Attico is inspired by the lagoon, a coastal basin separated from the sea by a barrier island. Being subject to the tides, it is a constantly changing habitat. The latin etymon “lacuna” (empty space) evokes a place/container that houses a balance both delicate and mutable. So, the Laguna collection comes from the place where lacuna and lagoon meet.

Creating a relationship between content and container, boundary and limit, this borosilicate pitcher and glass set are made of overlapping transparent layers of empty space in which colored liquid has been placed. The brightly-colored liquid moves and changes with each movement of the glass, and the three horizontal chromatic strips blur into each other like a Rothko painting.
