Czech Design at London Design Festival: Lasvit

Lasvit is a manufacturer of unique works of glass, including bespoke lighting installations, glass artworks, and award-winning collections. Lasvit combines the authenticity of Bohemian glass with unique design, craftsmanship and innovative technologies. At this year's London Design Festival their pieces will be displayed at 100 % Design, The Conran Shop stores, Mint Shop and at the Matter Of Stuff exhibition in The Hospital Club.

The brand Lasvit, founded in 2007 by Leon Jakimič, sheds a new light on Bohemian glass and takes it into the next millennium. Lasvit combines the authenticity of glass with innovative technologies and creative craftsmanship. In a few short years, Lasvit has established itself as the authority delivering bespoke lighting sculptures and art installations made from hand-blown glass. Collaborations with renowned designers and artists produce also unique glass collections. Nendo, Ross Lovegrove, Daniel Libeskind, Maarten Baas, Czech legends René Roubíček and Bořek Šípek are among those who choose Lasvit in order to embody their unconventional artistic vision, endow it with the precision and mastery of our glassmakers, and produce impressive creative oeuvre. This is a manifesto of Lasvits’s uncompromising mission: To transform glass into breathtaking light and design experiences.
