MILAN 2014: Lasvit E Motions

April 15, 2014


Lasvit E motions was a stunning collection of nine never before seen lighting installations by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, and designers Maarten Baas, Michael Young, Arik Levy, Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus. For the first time the company also launched work by their art director, renowned Czech designer Maxim Velčovský.

Pieces included:

• Frozen by Maxim Velčovský, inspired by the transformation of water into ice.

• Kůra by Jakub Nepraš, representing a stream of information spreading through glass at lightning speed.

• Magnetic by Libor Sošťák, a piece whose movement suggests its glass component pieces are physically responding to the light.

• Alice, designed by Petra Krausoá, a kinetic piece which seeks to emphasise the common characteristic of glass and nature. Just as each tree – indeed each leaf – is unique, glass too is organic and unpredictable.
