prague-based studio deFORM — václav mlynář and jakub pollág — has designed the transmission collection for czech glass company kavalierthe series is made of prefabricated simax glass combined with a specialized welding technique, using kavalier’s most advanced technology. joined together with the use of heat, the glass parts fuse together, and the originally individual elements become one material and body.

‘transmission light sculpture’, the first in the series of objects previously featured by designboom here, has been designed to represent kavalier’s technical production possibilities, particularly glass welded connections. made from prefabricated glass flasks — originally used in chemical apparatus spheres —  that have been cut and welded to form a new composition, the luminaire appropriates the material into a multi-dimensional object. the layers of transparent material that comprise the lamp offer unpredictable and lumino kinetic effects from different angles and viewpoints.

the concept behind ‘air table’ is the idea of a solid wood desk built on invisible, yet strong base. made of thick technical borosilicate glass pipes and high quality ash wood, the visually lightweight table is connected by chemical apparatus joinery which makes it highly rigid and stable.
