Fascinated by the craft and tradition of cutting crystal, Smeeing has created a product, which conveys the performance of a fine cut surface. Based on the kaleidoscope, which comes from the ancient Greek kalos (‘beautiful, beauty’), eidos (‘form, shape’) and skopeo (‘to look to, to examine’), Kaleido brings out the visual effects of every cut, by projecting the broken light through the crystal, creating a myriad of coloured reflections. It is precisely this that makes the visual appearance of the centrepiece move and change depending on the objects kept within, creating a mesmerising optical effect in the space around it. The piece can be used as one or two separate bowls, holding objects in beautiful patterns of perfect geometry.
