‘jar RGB’ by paris-based designer arik levy for czech manufacturer lasvit connects thin colorful bohemian glass blowing techniques and the method of RGB color mixing together in a cluster of lighting pendants. presented during maison et objet 2014, the series uses white glass for the individual hanging jars, transforming them into a large light bulbs. observing one jar through another, the space surrounding them super-imposes the discovery of color gradation and light refraction.

 

in 2013, designboom had the opportunity to visit the lasvit production facility with arik levy in czech republic. below, we get an inside look behind traditional bohemian glass making within a world-class research and development center.
