Soft Pond by @nendo_official.
I know I'm posting a lot of their work lately, but everything they do fits in perfectly with minimalgoods so I can't help it 🙉
A unique quality of flat-cut crystals, used for chandeliers and dresses, is that the thicker the material is, the more saturated its color gets. The same phenomenon appears in large bodies of water - the deeper the lake is, the darker its colour. Therefore, a mix of crystal thicknesses was used in the objects to gain a range of shades and convey a feeling of depth.
The crystals were made by gradually increasing the thickness from top down, starting with 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, then 7mm.
They were also tapered so they will become thinner towards the outer periphery, to create a gradient effect within the same depth of water.
The result is a small vessel that resembles a small pond scooped up and placed on the table. The trays come in four different sizes, all with change of cutting at the same thickness, aimed to make the depth of water appear the same when using several vessels at the same time.
