A contradicting play of fire and ice takes place in Alberta’s Banff National Park as winter sets in. When the lakes freeze over, bubbles rising toward the surface are stopped in their tracks. These particular bubbles are full of methane—the gas is emitted by bacteria living below the surface after consuming organic matter—and highly flammable if released near an open fire. Undisturbed, these frozen forms provide a study in motion and, more importantly, show how stunning science can be. Here, Luxe dives into the latest market finds whose sleek forms are reminiscent of the icy formations.
