Working with the master craftsmen at the Lasvit factory in the Czech Republic, archistar Daniel Libeskind has created a bold, geometric chandelier that achieves a ‘one-of-a-kind’ luminosity through the delicate and fluid quality of hand-blown glass.
The Ice chandelier is made up of clear glass ‘cells,’ blown into angular molds and then clustered together in a series of puzzle-like, triangular patterns.
These modular patterns can be twisted and turned into any number of horizontal compositions to suit a wide variety of spaces. Like stalactites or icicles, the glass forms capture light, refracting it into prisms, so that each column glows in unpredictable ways.
The Ice chandelier will be exhibited at Officine Stendhal, Via Stendhal 35, in Milan’s Tortona district next week.
