Light Twister

Light Twister

Lasvit has created beautiful glass art installations for the prestigious office building at 540 West Madison, Chicago. The dominant features of the Atrium lobby and mezzanine are two impressive glass art sculptures going by the name of “Light Twister” created by Lasvit's in-house designer Libor Sošťák. His designs were inspired by dynamic movement symbolizing growth and rapid development.

The “Light Twister” installations are created from hand-blown organic crystal elements which use a variety of artistic techniques. Each of the artistic glass sculptures is created from more than 2000 hand-blown components in various shades of blue in combination with silver and clear opal. To empower the impression of dynamic movement, lighting elements were placed inside certain components.

Generally speaking, experimentation is the basis for all my work. I like to combine the idiosyncratic. I like to join history with the future. The goal is not just the product itself, but also the entire process which leads up to it.
