Wa means harmony, peace and balance.
Located in a modern Japanese restaurant in Santa Fe (Mexico City), this appealing element of its interior design generates different atmospheres with light. Its concept is based on one of natures most spectacular phenomena:
the ever-changing stars.
The sculptural creation is a 24m2 wall of unique hand-made panels. The polished surfaces reveal the fused-glass pieces when a LED installation brings it to life from behind. Around three hundred kilograms of window glass were recycled to create the luminous patterns of these panels, which fill the environment with wa. When turned off, it looks like a regular concrete wall, but when the dimming lights start to appear, the whole wall seems to be transformed.
