And Why Not: an emotional sculptural chandelier

anna volpicelliComment

Rene Roubicek is considered one of the fathers of modern art glass. Glass art, as an independent discipline, was born in Czechoslovakia and it was first introduced to the world by Roubicek over half a century ago.


The “And Why Not" chandelier is an evolution of Roubicek’s core designs resulting from lifelong experimentation with forms embodied in glass. The chandelier is based on a dynamic abstraction of light that glides on a large smoothly polished surface, creating an intense emotional sculptural form.
