We received exclusive photo report from North Bohemian glasswork company Lasvit showing production of the unique glass collection designed by famous Japanese designers Nendo.
Nendo has not collaborated with Czech company Lasvit for the first time. After last year success with Growing Vases chandelier produced by Lasvit, designer Oki Sato from Nendo was so fascinated by the traditional Czech glasswork that he has continued collaboration with Lasvit with two glass collection produced for Paris-based Carpenters Workshop gallery.
Innerblow and Overflow represents two different glass collections. Each of them uses glass in a different way with different production methods and creative concepts. But in both cases, Nendo has used glass and its production techniques as a live process based on the primary qualities of the material. The outcome are surprisingly light, subtle and airy pieces.
Here you can see Lasvit craftsmen during the production of Innerblow collection which includes tables made out of huge glass volumes blown into the metal boxes. Tomorrow you can see our report from the Paris exhibition which we have visited last month.
