Anhelus / Anhelus - breathtaking


Anhelus deals with the phenomenon of a baptismal font and the act of Christian baptism. Anhelus gathers the water intended for the baptism from the air of the congregation - water condensing on the cool brass point drips into the suspended basin. The interior of the ceiling element contains a specially conceived technology, which allows the brass point at the bottom of the cone to be cooled down to approx. 5 °C such that the water from the ambient air can condense on it.
The design is therefore a result of a consistent process of reduction. Invoking the baptismal angel, the suspended upper element has the shape of a cone.
