A beautiful evocation of the resilience of life on earth, Rise hints at the eternal mystery of life deep below and the creatures whose existence we only know by their breath rising to meet us, in the form of bubbles. Upon reaching the surface and breaking, these bubbles enter our atmosphere and eventually our own lungs – in the bubble is a communion of all life on earth. Like the deep-sea creatures by which it is inspired, the work’s blown glass bubbles arrest the breaths of WonderGlass artisans in glass form.

Hideki Yoshimoto in 2015 founded Tangent, a London-based design and invention brand. The brand explores and proposes unique ideas which bring the latest technology to people’s lives to improve and help them. Interweaving technology with design at the most sophisticated level, Tangent promises a wholly novel yet somehow familiar experience. A tangent line does not dissect a curve but touches it at a given point. The brand's idea of 'new, familiar, luxurious' is undoubtedly represented in their products, which respect such tenderness and subtlety, as well as the strength of the point of contact.
