Project Description

Hartmann Opticians

A minute Metropolitan Cascade

Hartmann Opticians, located just off St. Stephens Cathedral is a champion of finest artisanship. Beside their trade the family-driven company uses their windows to feature young artists.
When they refurbished their locale this combination of passions made the leap to a magnificent custom Metropolitan Cascade by Lobmeyr just a small step for a craftsman.
Dropping down from a standard Met chandelier we arranged larger sputnik elements that mingle with mouth-blown glass spheres to create a multifacteted installation to complement the historic architecture.
The glass spheres resembling eyes might be a pure coincidence…
