The brand Lasvit, founded in 2007 by Leon Jakimic, sheds a new light on Bohemian glass and takes it into the next millennium. Lasvit combines the authenticity of glass craft with innovative technologies and creative craftsmanship. In a few short years, Lasvit has established itself as the authority delivering bespoke lighting sculptures and art installations made from hand-blown glass. The manifesto of Lasvit’s uncompromising mission is: To turn glass into breathtaking light and design experiences.
Beauty and elegance came together in the heart of Europe and made Czech glass, also known as Bohemian, famous for its uniqueness and extraordinary quality. It became the decoration of choice in nearly every palace for centuries. Whether cut, blown or otherwise embellished, the sights of Roman Emperor Rudolf II, French king Louis XV or Empress Elizabeth the Great of Russia surely occasionally fell on its sparkling surface as they were shaping human history.
The intelligent manufacture of locally available natural resources and versatility of the product allowed the glass to become a staple of Czech heritage, a symbol of the small country’s aesthetic tradition and a craft passed on from generation to generation. Bohemian glass adapted to every artistic course and became a small taste of luxury that everybody desires to own to this day.
