Architect Daniel Libeskind has designed a geometric glass chandelier for Czech lighting manufacturer, Lasvit. The Ice Chandelier is made out of clear hand-blown glass pieces, to create geometric and modular patterns. The new addition to Libeskind’s portfolio is currently being showcased at the 2014 Milan Design Week, as part of Lasvit’s <E>MOTIONS Exhibit at Fuori Salone.
Working with the master craftsmen at the Lasvit factory in the Czech Republic, Mr. Libeskind has created a bold, geometric chandelier that achieves a ‘one-of-a-kind’ luminosity through the delicate and fluid quality of hand-blown glass.
The hand-blown glass pieces are “clustered together in a series of puzzle-like, triangular pieces”. The modular design allows for the pieces to be twisted and turn in different horizontal positions, and adapt to any space. The glass acts as a prism that captures light, making each piece glow in unpredictable ways.
