Palazzo Serbelloni - Piano Napoleonico
Corso Venezia, 16
Founded in 2007, the brand Lasvit gave new light to Bohemian crystal, taking it into the next millennium. On the occasion of the Milan Design Week, Lasvit presents “Via Lucis”, a trip among unique and contemporary projects enhanced by the know-how and skills of master glassmakers.
The exhibition will be held in the Napoleonic Staterooms of Palazzo Serbelloni, where Napoleon Bonaparte lived during his stay in Milan. For him a set of precious Bohemian-crystal chandeliers were made that today return to their original splendour thanks to the restoration signed by Lasvit.
In such a setting, between past and future, great names like Moritz Waldemayer, Daniel Libeskind, the Campana brothers and Arik Levy, renew their collaboration with LASVIT reinterpreting past collections in a contemporary way.
In its project “Facet”, a contemporary version of the classical chandelier, Moritz Waldemeyer created a glass hexagonal base resembling a diamond. With just one hanging element, or through a combination of many creating a big chandelier, the FACET models stand out in their ordered and geometrical transparency.
