Lasvit: light as an emotional experience
24/05/2013 - Lasvit on the occasion of the last edition of Euroluce, presented a new glass collection of unique pieces by renowned designers. But let's check it out in detail!



Jar RGB - design Arik Levy
Jar RGB is a lighting project connecting thin colorful glass blowing techniques and the idea of RGB color mixing. Using white glass for one of the hanging jars allows it to turn into a large light bulb generating the light for the entire fixture. Observing one jar through another and the space surrounding them gives one a unique and everlasting discovery of color superimposition.

Labyrinth - design Arik Levy
The Labyrinth is inspired by fluidity, connections, nature and relationships… The fabric covered colored electric cables enter the Borosilicate glass tube and exit at different locations from which light bell form shades are hanging. The labyrinth stem can be placed in various locations along the wires and create a sensation of suspension in space.

Inhale lamp - design Nendo
This lamp was formed by blowing glass into the form of an air bubble then sucking the air away. Ordinarily, glass is made by blowing air into the molten material. The inhale lamp, on the other hand, comes from the act of exhaling. It‘s a form created by negative air pressure.

Press Lamp - design Nendo
The press design is availabe in two types: a pendant lamp and a floor lamp. In this design, glass tubes are pressed as though they have been pinched, and the light source is fitted into the narrowed space that results. Unusual in the fact that it does not rely on a metal form, the compression of the glass produces a soft, organic form and imbues each lamp with a singular appearance.

Plisse Cloude - design Maurizio Galante
The fashion elements and softness of fabric are here transformed into glass. One of the objects is based on the technique of Plisse, which rotates around its own axis. The other design is based on layering cracked desks.

Bamboo - design Jitka Kamencová Skuhravá
The Bamboo sculpture is inspired by the woody stems of bamboo plants. Individual components are sculptures shaped as hollow plant stems with cut edges. This element brings organic shapes and dynamics to the whole mix. Crystal hand blown glass tubes imitate the surface of a bamboo stem and are ground into its shape at both ends based on the traditional cutting of natural bamboo. All this is enhanced by light concentrating at the edges of glass.

Bondage - design Lucie Koldová
The idea of blowing glass over a metal structure and the connection of two seemingly unconnectible materials, leather and glass, have created a bold and exciting design. Smooth leather creates the illusion of streamlining and shaping the body lamp. Leather straps clutch the glass, which compensates the pressure by natural bulging.

Spin Light - design Lucie Koldová
Small and large transparent pendants multiplied. Spin light’s expression of dynamics is based on a simple rotational form resembling a child’s toy known as the spinning top or the silhouettes of whirling dervishes. It gives the lights a basic graphic impression. Clear transparent airy lamps with a touch of color on top are powered by small LED efficient discs which highlighting strong silhouettes and let them float freely in the space as empty volumes.

Neverending Glory Collection - design Jan Plechac & Henri Wielgus
The Neverending Glory collection reflects nostalgic emotions and interprets opulent candle chandeliers in new way to symbolize prime moments of appreciation and glory. In individual silhouettes it is possible to recognize iconic chandeliers from five of the world’s most eminent concert halls and theaters; La Scala in Milan, Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, but also the Czech Republic’s Estates Theater in Prague.

Art Bulb - design Rony Plesl
The inspiration was industrial light, which is practical, proportional and has proven itself over centuries. The conversion to glass and the demanding cut of Czech master glasscutters allows it to receive a new and luxurious form. The design comes from Rony Plesl´s own free creation combining modern shapes with classic décor. The detail of craftsmanship is an important element giving the light a thorough and original appearance.

'And Why Not!' - design René Roubícek
René Roubícek´s chandelier designed for Lasvit named by its author 'And why not!' refers to his lifelong experimentation and searching compositions and forms incarnated in glass. The chandelier´s emotionally intense sculptural form resembles a flash and is an evolution of Roubícek´s core designs based on dynamic abstraction. Light gliding on large smoothly polished surfaces while absorbed by the mass of the glass creates a unique atmosphere.LASVIT, Jar RGB
