Arik Levy created a series of roughly cut hand-blown glass pendants for Czech lighting specialist Lasvit. Crystal Rock comes in a variety of different colours and opacities, creating a game of reflections. The gem-like pendants can be viewed at the 2014 Milan Design Week, as part of Lasvit’s <E>MOTIONS Exhibit.
Not from the Stone Age but closer to Kryptonite, Crystal Rock appears in the cave of the future as an ambassador of the fusion between nature and man, light and reflection, transparency and mass.
Crystal Rock’s LED source puts emphasis on the artistic glassmaking process and advanced gluing techniques, creating a fascinating array of reflections and deflections during day and night.
