LASVIT's biggest artwork in Europe

LASVIT's biggest artwork in Europe

The Iceberg installation is LASVIT's biggest work in all over Europe. It audaciously floats above the spacious entrance hall of the office building Bořislavka Centrum, the home of KKCG headquarters.


The astonishing power of nature

The glass peak of The Iceberg stands out of a wooden surface, which symbolizes the sea. It extends over almost 500 square meters of the ceiling. Giant panels made of flat, sintered glass gradually light up to create the impression of a living organism.


Story behind the light


The secret of icebergs

”Icebergs are quite a big topic for me. They conceal secrets, because seven eighths of their mass are hidden underwater. You’ve got billions cubic metres of ice there. And once it melts, it becomes water and evaporates into clouds,” describes Maxim Velčovský, LASVIT’s Art Director.


With respect for architecture

With his design, LASVIT’s art director Maxim Velčovský wanted to emphasize the architectural intention of Aulík Fišer Architekti, who see any building as a whole – the way interiors, details, public space, but also the flowers and greenery inside come together.


Symbiosis between glass and wood

The installation consists of 110 glass components and 1503 pressed wooden boards. They differ in length, shape and width, each of them is unique and creates a wave effect. If the slats were stacked behind one another, they would form a line 1.2 kilometres long.


Lighting effect

The wooden slats are variously perforated, creating a grid in which the glass components are hung so that light can pass through, and they in this way support the handmade decor of each glass item.


Handmade details

The glassmakers used flat glass sintered on Trennmittel base, drilled and heat-cured. The designer then manually created a pattern to the base, into which the glass was sintered.
