"Foodmarketo", a project by apartamento magazine & Designmarketo, revolved all around fruit and vegetables. We took oranges as a starting point and decided to marry the most mundane with fine Lobmeyr mouthblown glass. The orange net has an interesting texture and when used as a template for sandblasting it leaves a wonderful graphic, even three-dimensional-looking pattern. The fact that the ornament only appears partially like a shimmer and is never completely symmetrical, gives the object an instant liveliness and freshness underpinning its citrus inspiration.
