A Wine Glass Work of Art

Even from a distance, this stunning light fixture in the Visitor Center in Kufstein, Austria is a breathtaking focal point in the large space. Get up close, however, and things get even more interesting.

It’s constructed using 1477 perfect wine glasses by glass manufacturer Riedel. They’re attached to a stainless steel sphere along with dedicated RGB LEDs for each glass. The color-adjustable LEDs are enhanced by the structure of the glasses as each seems to fill with vibrant hues. Measuring in at over 130 inches in diameter, it’s a substantial, sculptural piece of spherical art that pays homage to Riedel’s designs over the last 250 years.
