Designed by the Brazilian architect Guilherme Torres for Swarovski Crystal Palace, the instalation is a big Voronoi diagram, which describes the division of spaces into cells with corresponding focal points, combined with the mangrove-root imagery, leding Torres and his team to design angled structures of acrylic tubes that are filled with amber-colored crystals and illuminated from within by LEDs. These root structures, which Torres wanted to look as if they were made of crystals, are set into shallow pools of water, against a backdrop of projections of an Amazonian sunset.
Breeze is a Sculpture’s exhibition pedestal. It is deliberately design to improve the appreciation of Sculpture while providing a solid fixture and safety from general public.

Creative speculation over global sustainability matters and pursuit of finding a probable solution against planned obsolescence, led to the creation of this curiously ordinary, fabulously ridiculous timeless object, intended to serve not only with its aesthetic or practical purposes but as provocateur of subtle emotional reactions. This design represents a conceptual silver goblet ring, intended to be used, both as a statement jewellery piece and a tableware embellishment.
