Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards

Go deeper into the interior and follow the glass towards the main lobby area, where it loops and turns its direction. Follow the glass path in the largest private development that has ever been built in the history of the United States.


Cultures of USA

A various composition of materials used throughout the building symbolizes different cultures in NYC. The different stripes of glass being unified together stand for the cohesion of New York people.

The story behind the light



“Glassmaking techniques and materials form the body of precious knowledge passed on from generation to generation,” says designer Jana Růžičková about the inspiration behind the piece, which focuses on raw techniques.


Soft light

Modern LED downlights provide precisely distributed light sources that give the installation a sense of movement as one walks under it.


Three rounds with glass

After three rounds of blowing, finishing and coloring, the glass master pinches all four corners of the hot component to create a square shape. He then continues to spin the piece until it flattens, shaping it with Czech diamond shears to bring the final form to life.



359 hand-blown Bohemian crystal elements. There are four varied types of glass components in clear and amber tones, decorated with silver and bronze mica-flakes for enhanced texture and light refraction.



The blowing craft goes back to antiquity and many of the techniques remain unchanged. The lighting installation in Hudson Yards is an example of fine-tuned Bohemian perfection combined with contemporary design. A precious matter.

I have always liked the simplicity of minimalism and this style is reflected in my designs. Glass is a magical material and a great medium to work with – always challenging, but always bringing new experiences.
