lasvit: infinity crystal lighting sculpture and hydrogene LED bar

lasvit: infinity crystal lighting sculpture and hydrogene LED bar ‘infinity’ and ‘hydrogene bar’ created during the 2012 london olympics by glass manufacturers lasvit

 

 

 

during the 2012 olympic games in london, czech glass and crystal manufacturers lasvit have specially produced a lighting installation entitled ‘infinity’ and the illuminated crystal bar ‘hydrogene’. the contemporary chandelier was informed by its namesake – the perpetual expanse of the universe and mathematics expressed by one iconic symbol. the 7-meter shimmering piece is constructed from 1,400 hand-blown glass leaves, decorated with grooves to create the shape of the letter ‘s’ and bedecks the public space of the czech house. the ‘hydrogene bar’ is fabricated from ‘4 arch for lasvit’ –lars kemper & peter olah’s innovative and versatile architectural system of luminescent glass structures. a series of LEDs brings the detailed glass panels to life, which can be rearranged to form a range of modern interior and exterior assemblies as well as lighting design. glowing vertical glass elements form the rectangular surface of the bar, with a series of pendant-style ceiling lamps hanging above to enhance the aesthetic of the space. the textured finishes radiate a  playful show of light and color.
