SPRING-SUMMER 2020, THE «KALEIDOSCOPE COLLECTION»
The word kaleidoscope comes from the ancient Greek words “kal(ós )” which means beauty/beautiful, “eîdo(s )” which means form/shape and the ancient verb ” skopein” which means to view/ observe, Kaleidoscope = The observation of the beautiful shapes. That’s exactly what we are seeing in the new MiNiMiS Kaleidoscope Collection, Corfu Island and the beauty of its colours and shapes through the shapes of recycled glass jewellery. Bridges, Tangram, Rocks, Petals, Nautilus and Quad are the shapes that we used to form the Kaleidoscope Collection.

Tangram

Geometrical glass puzzles consisted of mixed shapes, cut into pieces that can be arranged to make various other shapes. The dynamic triangles refer to the Greek mountains, the rectangles to important Greek women of history, while the concaves to elements such as the Greek sun, Attic light and the circle of life.

Bridges

Irregular glass coloured strips put together to form a glass bridge. They spontaneously refer to images of objects, other asymmetric and other symmetrical that all create a distinct harmony.

Rocks

Colored pieces of glass placed on top of each other in rock formation. The unevenness of the glasses makes their sequence particularly interesting while maintaining their harmony, as the different notes keep pace.

Petals

The petal motif represents the nature’s petals. Earth, Air, Water, Nature, Olive and Sky joined forces for the new collection and created a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. They express the simplicity of the shapes of nature and together the complexity of its continuous, eternal function.

Nautilus

Curved glass cells rotating and combined in various shapes and colours. The familiarity of the hollow refers to the curves and circles of life, the sea and the sky of Greece.

Quad

The simplicity of a quad parallelogram represents the basic shapes ofnature’s geometry. The word “parallelogram” was first introduced by the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid. The figure represents the architecture and geometry of ancient Greek culture.
