Stanislas Libensky and Jaroslava Brychtova form a major duo in the school of modern Czech glass. Since the 1950s, their works result from the sculptural use of moulded material. Diagonale varies in thickness, with superimposed planes, openings that highlight the mutations of colour and light. Between sculpture and stained glass, this piece plays with light and its transformations like a filter in coloured light.
