According to the designer's philosophy, again old items become objects of modern design. In this transformation, various products of glass, like vases, bottles, étagères or bowls made of high-quality leaded crystal are refined using a special metal lamination. Through this special procedure the crystal's original cutting is highlighted and the glass' texture is revealed even more. Beautiful colour gradients then decorate these objects, let them shine in new splendour and in the full range of colours.
Each product of the OPAL collection is a unique piece of art.
