This is a stylish design called SoundForm FLUID, was designed by Philip Michael Wolfson. This idea was purposely designed for the whisky brand Glenmorangie.
Here is a brief description from the designer:
- For Glenmorangie, we were requested to create a sculptural piece for the launch of Glenmorangie Scotch Whisky in Taiwan & China. For this, SoundForm FLUID was conceived as a concrete visualization of the wavelength generated in pouring a liquid into a crystal glass.
- The idea for the Glenmorangie work, SoundForm FLUID, is a development of my studios’ research in the manner in which sound can be conveyed and transformed into a tangible object. The intention behind the SoundForm series is that they are seen as a visual poetry, where the representation of sound conveys an intended meaning or effect.
- SoundForm FLUID originated through the visuals of the audio recording of sound created by the pouring of liquid into a crystal glass, where the subsequent graph, or sonogram, recording was used as a base profile, or visual, instigating the geometry.
- In this work, you have the movement of the pouring of the liquid which creates this languid, rhythmic motion, the reaction between the glass and the liquid and then, the resulting stillness as it settles.
- At each stage of the creation process, revisions, alterations and adjustments were carried out to allow for the realization. In the fabrication, we had to resolve demanding technical issues to do with the complex compound curves of the design, as well as developing new techniques for the finishing, which is a powder coating of 2 different colours – a fascinating challenge that required a new approach.
- Primarily this is about a sculptural form and the function as a bar is secondary to this. The entire process began purely as a sculptural concept – ink lines drawn on a roll of trace INTERPRETING the wavelengths recorded in that act of pouring the liquid into a crystal glass.
It is important to decorate some elements in the hospital with some good design to make it brighter and charmer. Recently, a Dutch designer, Lotte van Laatum has designed Liturgical Elements for one of hospitals in Rotterdam, Netherlands, the Maasstad Hospital.
Here is quite long description from the designer, check it out:
The concept of ‘light’ was the starting point for the designs of the liturgical elements. The oecumenical services are taking place at the auditorium. This is an internal space lacking natural daylight. Patients of the hospital are the visitors of the services and the concept of ‘light’ can positively contribute to their personal issues.
Light has an important biblical meaning. The separation of light is God’s first act in the creation and it represents the divine harmony. Light is the secret of the Creator and it symbolises the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The auditorium is a neutral space without ecclesiastical architectural elements. The main concept behind the design is formed by light passing through church windows lighting the liturgical elements. The projection which remembers this light is executed in an inlay pattern of Jerusalem stone and Lebanon cedar. Jerusalem stone is literally stone form Jerusalem and is a representation of the Holy Jerusalem. Lebanon cedar is described in the Old Testament as the interior of the Temple of Salomon.
The design of the church windows is based on the circle and the sphere, both symbols of the divine and perfection. It also symbolizes the sun as a heavenly body.The basic shape of the sphere is also used for the designs of the textile and the tableware. This way the different layers in the design come together. The textile is made from linen and lamb’s wool, also materials with a biblical meaning. The textile is produced by the Textile Museum Tilburg. The tableware is made of mouth blown Bohemian crystal.
