Founded in the Czech Republic in 2007 by Leon Jakimic, Lasvit has been combining the finest traditions and craft in innovative Bohemian glass making with the creativity and imagination of top designers and the precision and skills of experienced glassmakers.

The luxury lighting brand has worked with some of the world’s most celebrated designers to transform glass into breathtaking light and design experiences, including Arik Levy, Michael Young and Ross Lovegrove. The firm also presented their unique glass lighting installation, “Ice”, by Daniel Libeskind at 100% Design London this year.

Lasvit translates as ‘love and light’ in Czech. Here are some of examples of their work which we love at Adelto.

For the main lobby area of the Peninsula Paris hotel, Lasvit created an artistic glass sculpture called “dancing leaves” designed by Luděk Hroch. It evokes a gust of wind, gradually spiraling upwards, created by entering the hotel lobby.
