Designed by the Swiss transdisciplinary studio atelier oï, Aura explores radiance and illumination. Incised windows in the glass form appear as portals from the exterior, revealing a complex interiority. Directional lighting elements crown the work, acting like sunbeams which penetrate through and pass by the material, thereby casting vibrant light effects.
atelier oï was founded in 1991 in La Neuveville, Switzerland, by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis, and Patrick Reymond. The name oï, derived from the Russian word ‘troïka’, a team of three, conveys the dynamism and holistic energy generated by a trio. atelier oï is the result of an alliance rooted in humanity and art alike. The founders’ deep involvement with architecture, design, and naval construction, as well as the encounter with charismatic personalities such as Alberto Sartoris and Ettore Sottsass, have shaped atelier oï’s philosophy.
