Concept

The brackets, manufactured using traditional sand casting technique, are available in brass or aluminium. Models in nickel and patinated brass are also available. The surface is partially polished in order to accentuate the handcrafted character. Typical for the sand-casting process, small irregularities may exist, even in the polished surface. Secured by the brackets, the angle of the glass shelf is adjustable.

The Pioneer series
The foundational series under the GHYCZY name, this avant-garde collection pays homage to the clamping technique that made Peter Ghyczy a pioneer in his field. After playing with fabricated 15mm glass plates first developed in 1960, the Pioneer Series was designed around glass being the central construct. Each glass plate floats within these designs clamped in several places, essentially holding the construction together.
