PREVIEW SALONE 2016: Lasvit
For the Salone del Mobile, major designers, including Daniel Libeskind, the Campana Brothers and Arik Levy, renewed their collaboration with LASVIT – the brand which combines the authenticity of glass with innovative technologies and creative craftsmanship – reinterpreting their past collections created for the Czech House, focusing on the theme art de la table with extraordinary small objects and tableware.
FACET by Moritz Waldemeyer
Moritz Waldemeyer‘s FACET bends the glass to its will. In all its beauty and variety, glass is essentially an amorphous material with no regular crystalline structure. Yet through a design vision and mastery in glass-making craft, the material can come to mimic its opposite, creating highly organized and consistent structures.
As if trying to systematize the chandelier-making tradition, Moritz took the geometrical shape of the Classic chandelier outline and turned it into a diamond-like hexagonal glass building block. On its own, with just single pendant, or in combination of multiple items into a large chandelier, the FACET modules stand out as clear, disciplined and geometrical. The light source included inside every block allows the FACET system to be universal and almost unlimitedly extendable.
