Quelle Fête is a series objet d’arts created by design firm ROTGANZEN that can be seen in public venues as an art installation, as part of a collaborative furniture collection and are sold separately for home decoration on a smaller scale.
ROTGANZEN Melting Disco Balls
The object represents a playful image of days gone by and a melancholic reminder of the glamour nights of disco. The amorphous shapes are covered, through painstaking craftsmanship, with a carefully arranged glittering skin of mirrored glass tiles. The once iconic shape of the disco ball is reborn with new character and meaning in an ode to the happy days of way back when.
The fun handmade objets d’art add design panache to the exterior and interior of restaurants and stores and are also a component in a collaborative collection of furniture designs (shown later in this post). The Rotganzen design collective also produced Mini Quelle Fait I and for individual sale.
