DesignLASVIT, the Czech brand leader in glass processing, unveils Re/Creation, a monumental installation designed as a haven where minds are free to wander, inspired by the fluid grace of molten glass. This misty landscape of portals forms a serene and immersive magical space, a sight to behold in the breathtaking courtyard of Palazzo Isimbardi [Until April 21, Map].

We set up a sanctuary for creative escapism, a peaceful retreat amid the hustle and bustle of Milan‘s  Salone week. Escape everyday creative pressures, high expectations, and practical issues to find inspiration in Re/Creation – a space that encourages you to let go.” Explain at Lasvit.

Let go is not only an attitude but a specific technique when manufacturing molten glass for architecture. “The essence of fused glass lies in letting go. Extremely hot melted glass is gently coaxed to relax, spread, and naturally take the shape of a specially designed form, guided solely by its weight and the subtle pull of gravity. Similarly, a creative mind is most prolific and innovative when relaxed and free of everyday pressures and demands.”

The Re/Creation installation is a testament to Lasvit’s unparalleled expertise in artisanal glass for architecture and the diverse applications of fused glass. Crafted in Europe’s largest glass kiln, it showcases the company’s technical prowess and vividly demonstrates capabilities in terms of size and variability.

The courtyard installation was designed by Lasvit art director Maxim Velčovský, and it’s complemented by scenographic settings by international designers. Swedish architecture studio Claesson Koivisto Rune presents the Nebula collection of bulb-like table lamps and ceiling lights. The many parallels between music-making and glass-blowing inspired the MILES collection by Yabu Pushelberg.
