Concept

Penrose seems to rest on one point. Bonding the glass slabs - fnely fnished in the oblique cut of every edge – makes magic:
the glass becomes lighter and bends on itself, remaining in perfect balance. Penrose is the aesthetic and functional metaphor of mankind's challenge to exceed nature and its balance by using glass.
