Reflections of the future. A mother-of-pearl effect on a transparent base. This is the essential feature of Glimmer, the new Sicis collection of glass mosaics with iridescent surfaces and intangible crystal reflections. Laying out a mosaic surface with these characteristics creates something reminiscent of certain stretches of water, where the surface tension creates a play of rainbow-like colors, which change with the light and the direction of your glance. Why not then, transfer this magical inconstancy of light and transparency onto the walls of buildings, so physical and material? With Glimmer, Sicis handles the concept of a surface, not as a two-dimensional ‘field’ to be decorated, but as a means of changing the perception of a structure and enhancing what it truly is: volume and space, light and shade, identity and expressive power. Yet again, the desire is to exceed the limits imposed by standard practice by moving into territories where the imperative is research and experimentation. But this is nothing new for Sicis whose very DNA is in harmony with forward-looking wavelengths.
