FLOAT is a candle stand. It can also be used as a container. Through the mixture of white pigments on the bottom, it reflects the imagery of musty clouds like the cloud sea surrounding the high mountains of Taiwan. The flow of the melted glass turns in to different patterns like the divers culture and freedom of Taiwan. The object in FLOAT refracts hazy shadow through its glass like the FLOAT itself that shows the imagery of unreal.


Subject: Hybrid/Craft & Industry

Main Concept:
Taiwanese culture is broadly diverse and inclusive. Traditional craft and innovative vision coexist at the same time leading Taiwan to the world shaping exclusive Taiwanese cultural style. Hybrid combines Taiwanese craft culture and industrial production along with the hand of Taiwanese specialized glass crafter to create the heart of the concept. Through the inspiration raised by craft and industry, it brings Taiwanese glass industry into a new cognition.
