Tsunami Glassworks and Alvaro Uribe Design have once again paired up to create a mystic lighting collection named Lava Drops. This otherworldly set of lighting aims to capture the essence of Tsunami’s brand, where form, color, and nature are intertwined.
The vibrant globes are meant to capture the liquidity of lava, as if it were frozen in time. It mimics the creation process of glass products, where every design begins with a glowing bud of molten glass, also known as “gather”. Gather often looks like molten lava and is extremely flexible, like clay. Each Lava drop represents the initial, droplet shape of gather that the glassblower then sculpts.
Because Lava Drops are made of mirrored glass, not only is it a light source, it also acts as a reflector. Thus, even when the light is not on, its exterior reflects and multiplies ambient natural light.
