Glass Extravaganza from Lasvit

Progressive Czech glass specialists Lasvit put on a spectacular show during the design week in Milan, showcasing a wide range of installations, lights and accessories which threatened to outshine the neo-classical splendour of the Palazzo Serbelloni where they were shown.

Lasvit may be a relatively new brand but they bear the torch for centuries of Bohemian glass-making expertise, updating heritage with contemporary designs by leading international designers.  Lighting is at the core of the business.  We particularly like the iridescent extravagance of the Empress chandelier by Jakub Berdych and the glamorously macabre human skull inspired Memento Mori suspension light from Maxim Velcovsky.  The glassware collection also impresses, from the candy-coloured vessels of the Campana Brothers to the minimalist facets of Arik Levy's vases.  This is truly a masterclass in the endless possibilities and captivating beauty of glass.

Product Inspiration

The jewelled tones of the Toadstools sofa from Missana, the mixed materials of the Mathilda chair from Moroso and the luxurious Lake rug from Golran would all match for the extravagance of mouth-blown glass.

 
 

For a super modern interpretation of the traditional crystal chandelier try the I.Rain OLED suspension light from Blackbody or the spectacular Candelabro suspension light from LZF.

 

Sometimes, to add a touch of glamour, only shades of gold will do.  Check out the beautiful brass accessories from Ghidini 1961 and the poetic ceramics from Sena Gu.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
