Design by Constantin Boym, 2010.
Matrix is built of a series of crystal blocks which are layered in a pattern that seems to take on a life of its own. The design encourages the interplay of light and crystal and makes the blocks appear to be floating, moving. The result is an intriguing element that can house a variety of items for display or use.
"Matrix family continues my exploration of architectonic forms applied to the scale of tabletop objects. At first, Matrix appears as a seemingly random group of blocks mysteriously suspended in the air. Closer inspection reveals a rational symmetrical plan, arranged to support a bunch of fruit or to shelter a flame of a votive candle. The composition is based on contrast between the container and the contained, between transparency of crystal and solid materiality of natural things inside." — Constantin Boym
