Nova is a new kaleidoscopic glass sculpture that was recently installed in Flatiron Plaza on 23rd and 5th.

Using a mix of optical materials, our design creates a human scale kaleidoscope, remixing the surrounding iconic buildings with color, light, and the reflections of pedestrians,” said Michael Szivos, Founder and Principal at SOFTlab. “Although our design reads as an iconic and festive figure from above, the experience at the pedestrian level is very different. The exterior gives way to a crystal-like, mirror-surfaced interior that looks different from all sides.

The sculpture will be available for public viewing through the holidays.
