Hand-blown glass lights by Zaha Hadid Architects

These fragile compositions combine the precision and mastery of Lasvit’s Bohemian glass-makers with innovative new technologies.

Inspired by dune formations, Duna is an asymmetrical pendant composed by pairing intersecting glass forms; their striated surfaces generating many varied reflections and refractions. Light is precisely focused through Duna’s central element and refracted to its perimeter, highlighting the fluid geometries crafted in hand-blown glass.

Composed of fifteen glass pieces arranged in a single ensemble, Eve combines traditional glassmaking techniques with parametric design within a composition that accentuates the clear and opaque elements of the chandelier. Suspended at varying heights, the glass bodies create an impressive play of light and shadow; their sculptural forms, notable in daylight, generate very different, contrasting qualities in the evening, when illuminated.
