The thousand year tradition of the murrine technique is re-interpreted in a contemporary context by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. This ancient Roman technique consists in the preparation of a multicoloured bundle of slender glass rods placed in order to obtain a particular design and then melted together and cut into small disks. Fukasawa took this as inspiration for this collection, choosing to use just one giant transparent glass rod. The result: an extraordinary object, available in a limited numbered edition in different versions: black -crystal, white - crystal, and coral red - crystal, generous in size with a clear-cut shape. A precious paperweight, when set on paper it becomes a magnifying glass that enlarges words and pictures.
