In 2017, artist Franck Miltgen designed a 8′ wide and 12′ high stacked glass sculpture for Mercier Building in Luxembourg. It contains 300 pieces of water-jet cut float glass, which were stacked and installed by our craftsmen on site in Luxembourg.
“The idea behind this project was to create a connection to the historical champagne cellar, which is not accessible to the public anymore” explains artist Franck Miltgen. “Key of the project was that the sculpture would represent the art of translation: the transformation of a physical item into digital data and into a physical item again. At the same time, the art piece shows the displacement from dark cellar into light-flooded glass-architecture, whilst having a mineral and monolithic quality, resulting in a space divider which is allowing visitors an introspective moment whilst being in a public space.”
