Rainbow Coasters

A set of glass coasters, printed with cross sections of a three dimensional rainbow.
When not in use, the stacked set creates the illusion of a full rainbow, suspended within it.

One-off set produced in response to the re-assemble brief set by Yamaha Design Studio London and keechdesign.

Product Description

Re-assemble
A collaborative and conceptual design challenge, re-assemble brings together eight UK based creative designers / studios from different fields and backgrounds.

The challenge was to re-imagine ‘building blocks’, adding new experience values and bringing a unique and personal approach from each of the designers. Aimed to be a collaborative and engaging exploration into how we can still extract meaning and delight from even the most simple ‘childlike’ objects.

Technology

The method of creating 3D imagery with 2D images on glass sheets is not new. Check out work by artist’s Xia Xiaowan & Leandro Erlich. 2D profiles stacked together layer by layer to become a 3D shape is the basis of how many 3D printers work too.
