GLACIER DARK EDITION
GLACIER DARK EDITION
Cut nail varnish bottle tops become a playful Memphis pattern, nail polish bottle cut-outs look like fossil finds. GLACIER is a terrazzo developed by LLOT LLOV from discarded nail polish bottles and the material is now available in black for the first time. Compared to its predecessor in homely soft white, the black version appears more serious, harder and more mysterious. Different coloured lacquers as well as different quantities and cuts create different patterns. In some, the glass appears sparkling and translucent, others appear more subtly patterned.
GLACIER was developed in an upcycling workshop for the German cosmetics company COSNOVA BEAUTY in collaboration with the upcycling platform TRASH2TREASURE to recycle discarded nail varnish bottles and loose nail varnish colours in a non-cosmetic area. The different coloured bottles by cosmetic brand CATRICE are crushed and mixed into a concrete mix with black marble. The glass particles and the nail varnish sink to the bottom of the artificial stone slab and become visible after polishing. The colours of the lacquer as well as the glass of the bottles appear more three dimensional in front of the black stone. This creates a modern and individual interpretation of coloured terrazzo.
GLACIER DARK EDITION can be used both on the floor, as a worktop in the kitchen or bar, and as furniture.
GLACIER BASE TABLE
The tables from GLACIER terrazzo have three rectangular plates that describe a hexagon and are covered by a round table top. The GLACIER BASE TABLE is produced in a limited edition of five tables. Each table is unique, as the material composition for the terrazzo is individually put together and the respective nail varnish bottles are individually selected for each object.
GLACIER BLOCK VASE
Noble glitter, strong edging for delicate plants. The GLACIER vase is a solid high-edged terrazzo cuboid with two chambers for longer cut flowers, produced in a limited edition of five. Each vase is unique, as the material composition for the terrazzo is individually put together and the respective nail polish bottles are individually selected for each object.
GLACIER STAND CONSOLE
This high-quality console made of GLACIER makes a strong statement. On two bases lies a GLACIER plate from which glass and fine azure lacquer glitters. The 1-metre high pedestals are created by crossing plates and have the same profile as well as the same noble pattern as the table surface. The console is a unique piece.
