Lasvit is a Czech manufacturer of unique works of glass, including lighting installations and glass artworks. This year Lasvit has outshined more than 1500 exhibitions in Milano and won the prestigious Milano Design Award for 2018.

 

Lasvit brought to Milano a daring concept of glass Monsters, an outcome of a symphony of well-respected designers with the best bohemian artisans. The pieces, made of Lasvit’s workshops in the Czech Republic, employed both traditional and groundbreaking techniques including hand-blown, cast, fused and cut glass. Beside the premiering collection, Lasvit presented also signature glass installations.

 

Lasvit was founded by Leon Jakimič in 2007. Since that time Lasvit has become well known in the whole world. The company employs 450 people in the Czech Republic and also for example in Los Angeles, London, Moscow, Dubai or in Shanghai. The company is still growing, and it plans to rise its revenues by 12 % this year.

 

Lasvit is a successful Czech glass manufacturer next to other Czech companies like Preciosa, Moser and Rückl.
