DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Micro Matter

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Miniature Sculptures in Glass Test Tubes

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this project came with the awareness of the fact that if you look at art, illustrations, drawings - anything creative, it's really nice and inspirational if there's space inside, an other dimension (this can be abstract too). This makes looking at it a little bit like meditation, instead of thinking, you get to be inside for a moment. With this realisation, the project Micro Matter came to life.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Micro Matter consist of a series of miniature worlds floating inside upside down glass test tubes. Towering houses, sky scrapers, campsites and a water tower, each sculpture inspires the next. All pieces are handmade and of every world there is only one.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Micro Matter series is designed to take you out of this world for a moment, into another. Empty your mind while looking at them, a small space of peace in your home. Because of the glass, the worlds get to be in a small dome, completely closed off from the outside world.
