Czech glassmaker Lasvit has celebrated its tenth anniversary by introducing new lighting collections created in collaboration with some of the world's foremost architects and designers.

Kengo Kuma, Zaha Hadid Design, Ed Ng & Terence Ngan and Yabu Pushelberg are among those who have designed lighting products for Lasvit’s Laterna Magica range, which was first launched at Milan Design Week earlier this year.

The products were inspired in part by a 17th century image projector that used hand-painted sheets of glass, a lens and a bright light-source to project images in space. Lasvit is currently researching ways in which to simulate the principle using video mapping technology.

“We were interested in the architect’s perception of light as object in space and the materialisation of light,“ said Maxim Velcovsky, the company’s creative director.

The collections according to Lasvit


The Yakisugi collection by Kengo Kuma

“Using dry wood in place of traditional pre-soaked molds, the wood is charred by molten glass. That leaves a permanent imprint of its scorched texture on the glass surface, making each piece an authentic original. Kuma said: ‘My intention was to plumb the depth of wooden soul, captured inside the glass.’”

Eve and Duna by Zaha Hadid Design

“Composed of fifteen glass pieces arranged in one intriguing ensemble, Eve is a
chandelier that combines traditional glassmaking techniques with parametric design. Duna was inspired by the coherent yet abstract logic of dune formations that defy traditional Cartesian geometries. Its design concept is realised in a three dimensional, asymmetrical, pair of intersecting glass forms.”

Flux by Ed Ng & Terence Ngan

“Each lamp is hand-blown using a metal mold to provide its unique appearance. The clear top meets with inner and outer hand-painted gold and platinum layers, referencing the decoration of traditional Asian ceramics. Its organic lines trap and refract light between the layers to create a deep radiance and the impression of water in motion.”

Cipher by Yabu Pushelberg

“The Cipher collection is a juxtaposition of heritage techniques and modern form. Inspired by the versatility and texture of surface-patterning and the way in which it catches light, the delicate hand-blown crystal cylindrical pieces are cut with clean, clear lines. With components arranged in series and joined by polished champagne-gold finished connections that emit light, Cipher’s overall linear form creates a poetic visual rhythm.”
