Fol­low­ing last year’s suc­cess­ful pre­sen­ta­tion at the Salone del Mo­bile, LASVIT, the cut­ting-edge Czech based man­u­fac­turer of unique glass art­works, in­tro­duces new col­lec­tions de­signed by Kengo Kuma, Zaha Ha­did De­sign, Ed Ng & Ter­ence Ngan and Yabu Pushel­berg. The com­pany also show­cases an ex­quis­ite se­lec­tion of its lights col­lec­tion port­fo­lio, de­vel­oped to­gether with world-renowned de­sign­ers, leg­ends of Czech glass de­sign and con­tem­po­rary Czech de­sign­ers. This year’s show marks the 10th an­niver­sary of LASVIT.

In­te­rior de­sign­ers Ed Ng & Ter­ence Ngan and Yabu Pushel­berg stu­dio closely col­lab­o­rated with LASVIT on cus­tom projects and lever­aged their shared pas­sion for tra­di­tional crafts­man­ship com­bined with con­tem­po­rary de­sign. Their par­tic­u­lar sen­si­tiv­ity work­ing with space, light and imag­i­na­tion echoes in the La­t­erna Magica con­cept through their own sig­na­ture styles.

This year’s ex­hi­bi­tion, La­t­erna Magica, builds on the mu­tual re­la­tion be­tween ob­jects, light and space. The name is de­rived from an early type of im­age pro­jec­tor, de­vel­oped in the 17th cen­tury. The orig­i­nal de­vice used hand-painted sheets of glass, a lens and a bright light-source to project images in space. Us­ing video map­ping, LASVIT sim­u­lates this prin­ci­ple through glass ob­jects and light to tell the unique sto­ries of artis­tic vi­sions re­vealed through glass. “We were in­ter­ested in the ar­chi­tect’s per­cep­tion of light as ob­ject in space and the ma­te­ri­al­i­sa­tion of light.“adds Maxim Vel­cov­sky, Creative Di­rec­tor of LASVIT.

The show con­cept also re­flects a sixdecade mem­ory of Expo 58 in Brus­sels, where Czech artists ex­hib­ited the great­est in­no­va­tions of their time – the fa­mous La­t­erna Magika mul­ti­me­dia the­ater as well as the works of out­stand­ing Czech glass artists Stanislav Liben­sky and Rene Roubicek. Their de­signs are also in­cluded in LASVIT’S de­sign light­ing port­fo­lio and will be dis­played at Euroluce 2017. LASVIT is proud to present the work of these iconic de­sign­ers, who set the stan­dards for gen­er­a­tions of con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers and glass artists.
