These pendants may look like faceted gemstones, but they’re actually cut glass pendant lamps. The Crystal Rock lights, designed by Arik Levy for Lasvit, are a collection of roughly sculpted, but precisely cut fixtures that almost look like a non-moving shooting star. The facets on the exterior and the curvy inner surfaces, mixed with the LED light source, create reflections and deflections of gleaming light.

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.

Description

Moulds is a collection of suspended lights, showcasing Czech crystal at its most resilient and lively form. The series captures a specific moment when molten glass resists its expected shape and freely escapes from the mould as a random, amorphous bubble. The energizing this series arises from the contrast of used materials, using the traditional craft techniques of blowing crystal glass into a beech form.

“The idea came when we came across a warehouse filled with old wooden moulds that Lasvit had in their archive. We were absolutely fascinated by the thought that something as delicate and pure in terms of form could be born out of something as raw and elementally primitive as charred glassmakers’ forms,” Jan Plechá? explained. Henry Wielgus added, “We successfully attempted to create a light that blends the elegance of crystal with the rustic beauty of wooden forms, pounded together with iron cramps. Our design takes its strength from the rougher side of the traditional glass craft that stands behind its production.”

The Moulds collection brings powerful emotions into an interior. The composition of varied ‘overblown’ shapes creates a particularly striking visual effect. Integrated LED light sources were set directly within the charred form, creating an impression that the heat and energy of the glassmaker’s kiln remained inside, in historic reference to the art of Czech glassmakers…
