Across the Sea
Glass installation for Mandarin Oriental Jakarta.
Realization by Lasvit.
The main dining area features Across the Sea, a stunning 10-meter-long glass installation. The concept is based on merchant voyages when junk sails cruised the seas. Water surfaces are represented upside down, using hand-made turquoise glass components in the contours of waves. Their special crackled textures create a sparkling sea-like effect. Amber colored glass elements evoke stylized ancient junk sails with a sense of sunset. A black metal frame reflects the whole scene, creating a mysterious and dreamy atmosphere.
