VIENNA SCHEHERAZADE – DISTINCTIVE GLASS VASES

Glashütte Comploj

28.9.–6.10.2018

“Each piece is one of a kind – and every one tells a fairy tale.” On the basis of this program announcement, the reader might think of a thick book of stories. The dazzling one-offs in the “1001 Nacht” series that Robert Comploj presented at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK could be seen as nothing less than an installative Gesamtkunstwerk that spoke of the diversity of forms and craftsmanship cultivated here as a cascade turned into glass – just like Scheherazade and the stories she told the king. The handblown, individually colored, and manually finished vases were given a royal welcome in the temporary beer garden in front of the store.
