This year, at Salone del Mobile, the Czech company LASVIT presented “The Theory of Light”, which makes the observation that light is formed by Reflection, Perception, Spectrum, and Nature. They presented these findings by means of four outstanding installations. And today, Modern Chandeliers is going to show you everything.
LASVIT’s constant mission is to inspire the world with the beauty of glass. The company combines its link with the age-old tradition of glassmaking in Northern Bohemia with an innovative approach to the modern world. “
All four lighting installations showcase the unique features of pristine glass. Glassmaking is an honorable craft, and after six centuries it still remains a bit of a mystery. Glass is the backbone of everything we do, yet still we are amazed by its myriad possibilities. This year we wanted to show the beauty of glass that has inspired LASVIT for more than a decade,” says President and Founder Leon Jakimič. All four installations are flexible and customizable, and can be transformed within the space they occupy. Each is unique with special glass techniques, qualities, and original features.
An experiment with Perception conducted by Kateřina Handlová and Katarína Kudějová Fulínová, a creative pair of LASVIT designers, reveals their exploration into whether people could transform their emotions into a ray of light. The sculpture called Traces connects an individual ensemble of glass components through a high-tech approach and enables viewers to express their emotions through light and color.
“Traces is transformed according to its interaction with viewers, who can leave their emotions written in glass and light,” explains Katarína Fulínová. For a moment, everyone can become a co-creator of this spectacular installation, which changes according to their mood. “The installation is alive, and never looks the same twice,” adds Handlová.
An experiment capturing the color spectrum by different glassmaking techniques resulted in De-Lux-Ity. The designer, Wanda Valihrachová, used color coding as well as surfaces and their color features, finding original inspiration in street art. “I wanted to show that glass art has no limits and that it is very powerful visually,” she says, presenting her pieces as unparalleled, unrepeatable glass graffiti.
