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.
The Loligo chandeliers are made of wine glasses without their tops. The crystal and glass pieces are connected together at their circular rims. A LED light illuminates from the center of the piece producing a layers of brilliance and radiance.
The following candle holders are made from the broken pieces from the BIPOLAR collection. No piece goes to waste in the creation of the overall composition.
The glass bottoms, from the pendants are made into spinning tops and playful toy yo-yos.
