Spacial Magazine

Light has the poten­tial to embrace us. To cre­ate an atmos­phere. Space turns into an expe­ri­ence, into a place you do not want to leave. A chan­de­lier, lamp, site-spe­cif­ic light instal­la­tion or glass for archi­tec­ture – these are just a few exam­ples of Lasvit’s long-term expe­ri­ence with cre­at­ing unique spaces. That is why we decid­ed to share them and inspire others.

Spa­cial Mag­a­zine will guide you through res­i­dences, hotels, restau­rants and bars around the world. It will present the think­ing of renowned design­ers and archi­tects, for whom light is the foun­da­tion of their work and, more­over, it will open the far­thest cor­ners of the glass fac­to­ry in North Bohemia.

Each piece cre­at­ed by Lasvit is touched by a num­ber of hands and is patient­ly devel­oped for months in advance. Tra­di­tion meets con­tem­po­rane­ity and push­es the bor­der of Bohemi­an glass. On these pages we will present the phi­los­o­phy of pro­duc­tion and reveal an exclu­sive view, not only on the phe­nom­e­non of light, but also on the work and back­ground of design­ers, who are part of the Lasvit fam­i­ly. Because light is our mis­sion. Spa­cial Mag­a­zine. Where space and light become one.

Issue #2 Marvel

Awe, ela­tion and rap­ture. These are all short-lived expe­ri­ences. They only last for a moment but they will make your pulse race for weeks. These stim­uli invig­o­rate you and take your mind off real­i­ty. In the sec­ond issue of Spa­cial mag­a­zine, pow­ered by Lasvit, we explore var­i­ous aspects of the Mar­vel theme under the patron­age of lead­ing archi­tect and design­er Ken­go Kuma. What do peo­ple get excit­ed about? What arous­es their curios­i­ty and how do they over­come the seem­ing­ly impos­si­ble, and can only mon­u­men­tal works cause big feel­ings? Join us on this explo­ration in the sec­ond issue of Spa­cial magazine.

Issue #1 Privacy

A home is more than just a foun­da­tion, four walls and a roof. A home is a state of mind. It’s also a term, the mean­ing of which has sig­nif­i­cant­ly changed in recent years. In the pre­mier issue of Spa­cial Mag­a­zine, part of Lasvit Edi­tions, we explore this theme from var­i­ous per­spec­tives. How do peo­ple relate to their pri­va­cy and sur­round­ings? How does it dif­fer from just any space and which roles do unique­ness, sym­bol­ism or craft play? We dis­cussed this with George Yabu and Glenn Pushel­berg, lead­ing inte­ri­or design­ers in New York. We also had an open dia­log with the Cam­pana Broth­ers who have been part of the Lasvit design fam­i­ly since 2016. In this issue, you will also find a por­trait of Vladimír Kopecký, the glass artist, pro­fes­sor and poet who recent­ly cel­e­brat­ed his 90th birth­day. His expres­sive paint­ing on glass sur­faces is per­ceived as a con­tro­ver­sial attack on a valu­able material.
