The Horizon architectural screen is a customizable configuration of blown-glass pieces engineered to hang from the ceiling or secured from floor to ceiling. Explaining her design concept, Jeff Goodman Studio executive and creative director Sylvia Lee says, “I imagined looking through the keyhole of a door and seeing the horizon at sunset. I wanted to translate the intensity of colour in that micro experience into a macro expression. We use traditional blown glass as a vehicle to inject unapologetic, intense, beautiful colour into a space. This is about passionate colour and how we can live with glass as an architectural element in our everyday life.” Evoking red blood corpuscles, lentils and M.C. Escher’s flying swans, Horizon is eye candy with a sense of whimsy.
