A collection of colored glass objects was launched by Chinese designers Studio Buzao back in 2019 and its debut was timed to coincide with the Design Shanghai exhibition. In 2020, laminated glass objects received an interpretation in the new color Hot Pink.
The rectangles alternate, creating a special transparency and play of light and shadow. “When applied to a dazzling and unnatural color, the effect is partly hidden and partly visible, which changes a person’s sense of physical space. A conflict arises between dream and reality,” say the designers.
“Bright pink, can only be formed with mixed light, which is a non-spectral color. Unlike blue, which explores the visual abyss, Hot Pink has high permeability, which in combination with glass reduces losses in the process of light transmission, the volumetric structure is well structured and clearly defined.”
Studio Buzao, a young avant-garde team, is interested in unusual materials, giving equal importance to both raw materials and their processing. In the past, these have included volcanic rocks, laminated glass, marble and galvanized stainless steel.
