Iced steel sculptures
French artist Stéphane Thidet called upon Crystal Group to create frosted steel sculptures. They formed part of his piece, ‘Bruit Blanc’ [‘White Noise’].
The concept: to recreate a post-apocalyptic atmosphere in a place of celebration that winter has frozen over. All the creations were made of stainless steel and connected to a refrigeration unit that created the effect of the frosted sculptures.
