Poetic beauty: Hazy Day lamp by Marset

Barcelona-based Marset launched the Hazy Day, a hanging lamp inspired by that time of day when the sun has not yet come up and the light of the sky is filtered through the haze. As designed by Uli Budde, Hazy Day emphasizes unique aspects of glassblowing in the design process. Both the tone and texture of the piece change from the apex to the base of the shade, providing a gradual modulation from an impenetrable matte to a glassy transparence. The detail creates the implied haze, as it filters the light in a way that suggests sun breaking through early morning fog, or the illumination behind a seashore bank of clouds.
