Permanent glass sculpture at Hart Shoreditch Hotel, London


"Verrier" is the result of a collaborative effort between Hart Hotel and Rezzan Hasoglu of Studio Sahil, based in London. This installation weaves a narrative that harmonises with the hotel's rich history of craftsmanship.


Design and Features:

This remarkable installation graces the hotel's lobby entrance, suspended delicately from an iron structure. Illuminated from the base, the glass spheres cast enchanting ripple shadows that elegantly complement the wrought iron spiral staircase. The design pays homage to the silk weavers and Huguenots who settled in Spitalfields during the 17th Century.


Aesthetic Elements:

Featuring copper details and natural tones emanating from the sand-infused glass spheres, "Verrier" provides guests with a moment of mindfulness and playfulness. Moreover, it serves as a visual tribute to the diverse trading history of the local area.



The common French term for 'silkworm' is 'vers à soie,' derived from 'Verre à soie,' where 'Verre' translates to glass. The glass spheres in "Verrier" symbolise silk cocoons and the historic trading routes of Shoreditch. The selection of sand from continents worldwide represents the diversity of international visitors to Hart Hotel.
