Beauty Preserved in Glass

Beauty Preserved in Glass

Herbarium is a tribute to nature. A special glassmaking technique enabled us to imprint any flower in glass and conserve the image of nature as we know it. We wanted to get a piece of the landscape into our clients’ living rooms around the world and to let everyone preserve their very own family tree in fine glass.

LASVIT ICONS

ICONS are a curated selection of LASVIT´s signature designs. ICONS offer a middle way between bespoke installations and serial lighting collections. They are available in ready-to-order package which means quick delivery times and the most affordable choice for fine design lighting.

The story behind the light

Design Story

“What we wanted to do in Herbarium was to capture the wilderness, so anyone can take home a piece of the Bohemian meadow frozen in glass,” says Mária Čulenová, chief designer who led the creative team behind Herbarium.

Manufacturing

The magic happens when the molten glass is poured over dried flowers, herbs or small tree branches. That´s when the greenery turns into ashes but leave their distinct traces in the glass surface.

Ready-to-order Solutions

Even though Herbarium is preset in nine versions, it is still a unique piece for any client’s home. No two flowers in the world are the same, therefore each component we create now or in the future will be a unique, one-of-a-kind piece.

Color Variations

The installations are made of clear glass components, but there are also several components with the golden-painted flower imprint in each preset shape.

Origins

This concept was firstly introduced in 2020 as part of LASVIT’s campaign Nature of Glass and reaped great success around the world.

Great thanks
