Lasvit is a manufacturer of unique works of glass, including bespoke lighting installations, glass artworks, and award-winning collections. Lasvit’s mission is to transform glass into breath-taking light and design experiences. Petra Krausova, the designer of Supernova, searches for inspiration not only in materials and technology but also in the seemingly opposing topics of tradition and futurism.

Since being founded in 2007 by Leon Jakimic, Lasvit has been pushing the boundaries of traditional Bohemian glass blowing techniques, collaborating with international designers to create objects that are relevant in a contemporary context. The company expresses its progressiveness by intersecting technology with traditional manufacturing methods and introducing programmable lighting glass kinetic sculptures. To demonstrate its on-going research and development related to this topic, Lasvit will display Supernova by Petra Krausova at Downtown Design 2015.
