Yakisugi Won the Wallpaper* Design Award 2019


The glassware, designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, was picked by the jury as representing the best designs of the previous year and was put into a category with other prestigious companies, such as Mooi or Henge.

“I have always believed that our lighting and glassware can inspire the world and become world ambassadors for Czech craftsmanship,” said the president and founder of LASVIT, Mr. Leon Jakimič.
