Inspiration can come from anywhere. A book, a dream, a news report and occasionally some deeply dark and disturbing places in our society. Take for example this crystal collection that showed at this years Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. Designed by Koncern Design Studio for Rückl Crystal, this collection dubbed “Domestic Violence - Golden Edition” abstractly commemorates violent moments with these crystal designs that highlight the sad aftermath of domestic violent moments. Sliced, chopped and laid out flat, this collections even comes complete with a golden meat cleaver. Obviously this collection will not make the perfect wedding gift, but it may serve as evidence in the Superman vs. Lois Lane divorce trial.
Collection “Domestic Violence – Golden Edition” consists of red wine glass and carafe, martini glass, cocktail glass, vase and lustre all made of gilded 24% lead crystal and a golden meat-chopper.
