Lasvit celebrates a decade of unique glass artworks with groundbreaking new collections created in partnership with an international roster of designers. Under the tutelage of its founder, Leon Jakimič, the Czech-based atelier dedicated to innovation in glassworks has firmly established itself as a worthy successor of bohemian glass-making. Emboldened by progressive in-house designers such as the award-winning Petra Krausová, whose kinetic light installation Supernova is considered an industry benchmark, and through collaborations with top architects and interior designers, the atelier has created an impeccable legacy.
For its 10th anniversary celebration at this year’s Euroluce – the leading international lighting exhibition that runs concurrent to Milan’s Salone del Mobile – Lasvit unveils Duna, a chandelier conceived by Zaha Hadid Design. Informed by Hadid’s sinuous design codes, the sculptural piece ebbs and flows with an impressive play between refraction and reflection.
Interior designers Ed Ng and Terence Ngan of Hong Kong-based studio AB Concept push the envelope with Flux, a lighting collection that recreates the glitter of light playing off the ocean’s surface. The duo juxtapose nature with minimal form as they explore the endless possibilities of surface patterning and texture that Lasvit offers. Also on show are the latest works by Japanese architecture firm Kengo Kuma and George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, who follow up their successful collaboration on oversized diamond-like chandeliers for the Four Seasons Kuwait with a sleek design.
