Montreal-based designer Tat Chao has created IN VITRO, an upcycled collection that takes the beauty of glassware and crystal and transforms them into new pieces. The handmade items were carefully chosen from second-hand shops and then were assembled with a  simple bounding adhesive. The ensemble demonstrates the ‘Slow Design’ trend, exhibiting the rebirth from the damaged.

BIPOLAR pendant light was created from a pair of champagne flutes without their base. An anodized aluminum ring wraps a strip of LED in the middle. The diverse shapes range in size and colour from 6″ to 16″ long.
