At the 2018 Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris this January, Lasvit’s new introductions included new pieces within its most successful lighting collections – notably a smaller version of Neverending Glory, one of Lasvit’s most admired lighting collections.
The new Neverending Glory S (for Small) is exactly half-size compared to the original.This borders the edge of what is possible with human hands, both in terms of the sizes of the hand-blown glass and in precision and mastery. The designers Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus sketched the shape of the chandeliers by rotating the silhouettes around their own axes.
In the individual silhouettes, it is possible to recognise iconic chandeliers from five of the world’s most eminent concert halls and theatres – La Scala in Milan, Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Czech Republic’s Estates Theater in Prague, and the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow.
“The idea of the Neverending Glory collection came to us when we realised how many amazing old crystal chandeliers there are, and that it would be beautiful to bring them to a contemporary form and into modern homes,” says designer Henry Wielgus.
The current collection includes original clear, opal, smoke and iridescent variations. More information here.
