Göran Wärff created the Polar series with inspiration from landscapes and ice. Polar is a bold, artistic object from the archives of Kosta Boda. It originally launched in 1974 after its creation as a gift for the Sydney Opera House.
“Glass is a liquid. It’s as alive as rippling water. In Polar, I have frozen that movement in time, capturing the convergence of ice and light in an optical phenomenon. Polar is uncompromising, filled with life and movement.”
Polar is a series of glass sculptures that can also function as candle holders. The production technique allows the glass to flow down, resulting in a unique object each time. When the piece is moved around the room, another dimension is added through optical illusion. Combine the different sizes to create a playful grouping, or display the biggest one as a carefully selected design object in an art-loving home.
