Lasvit’s Via Lucis at Palazzo Serbelloni
For this year’s Salone del Mobile, Lasvit invited nine designers to create chandeliers for “Via Lucis” at the Palazzo Serbelloni. Among the new projects, the high-end Czech glass purveyors asked both established and emerging designers to imagine the chandeliers of their dreams (click through to see the full details of each designer’s project, including): Atelier OI, Jakub Berdych, André Fu, Maurizio Galante, Boris Klimek, Stanislav Libensky, Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, Maxim Velcovsky, and Moritz Waldemeyer.
The newly commissioned chandeliers were not the only examples of Lasvit craftsmanship on view: The Serbelloni Foundation had also requested that the Czech glass experts restore the existing chandeliers in the galleries as well. And alongside the custom pieces, Lasvit also unveiled “The Art of the Table“, a series of glass tableware, featuring new work by the likes of Daniel Libeskind, Campana Brothers, Patricia Urquiola, and Arik Levy, among others. In addition to the two new collections, the company also reissued Jan Kaplicky’s classic champagne bucket and a kinetic sculpture by Petra Krausova and Libor Sostak.
