“A simple rectangular planar figure is infused with the geometry of a sine-curve sequence. The freely curved surface fragment obtained from the
geometric operation is reproduced using Venetian glass. The strictly ruled geometry becomes a “Wave with Soul” that gains complexity in response to light. However, the simplicity of the original square remains unchanged. “The Wave with Soul” allows the free combination of the pieces and the overlapping waves create a variety of products”.

Tadao Ando

Tadao Ando, born in September 13 in Minato-ku, Osaka and raised in Asahi-ku, is a Japanese architect whose approach to architecture was categorized by Francesco dal Co as critical regionalism. Ando has led a storied life, working as a truck driver and a boxer prior to settling on the profession of architecture, despite never having taken formal training in the field.
He visited buildings designed by renowned architects like Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn before returning to Osaka in 1968 and established his own design studio, Tadao Ando Architects and Associates.
He works primarily in exposed cast-in-place concrete and is renowned for an exemplary craftsmanship which invokes a Japanese sense of materiality, junction and spatial narrative through the pared aesthetics of international modernism.
He began his collaboration with Venini in 2011.
