Glass Decorative Column: Peek-a-boo Box

Earlier in the year, I created a prototype of the decorative column with iridescent glass fragments, and here I’ve added some finishing touches for presentation purposes. The black box camouflages the metal column itself, leaving the fragmented glass pieces look like they are floating in space. The box have the rectangular openings for lighting to be added and circular openings for people to see through. The box can then be opened to reveal the entire structure.
