This geometrical structure is composed of spheres in three different sizes that are layered within each other. Glass triangles in three distinct shades of blue are fitted between these layers. The outer surface of the largest sphere is composed of an almost-transparent grey-tinted glass.

A light bulb situated at the centre of Cold wind sphere casts shadows and reflections into the surrounding room in the shades of the individual glass pieces as well as in the colours created by their superimposition.

The appearance of the sphere depends on the position of the viewer. The innermost layer of glass employs a special colour-effect filter glass that reflects light in its complementary colour (in this case, yellow) and appears opaque from certain perspectives.

The title, Cold wind sphere, refers to a model for an atmospheric system. Its core spiral structure is reminiscent of fossil vertebrates and biomechanical forms.
