Milano: Fuori Salone 2016 – Palazzo Serbelloni – Lasvit – Via Lucis. In the splendid rooms of Palazzo Serbelloni Lasvit presented “Via Lucis”, a journey through unique and contemporary projects enhanced by the experience and the skills of master glassmakers. Past meets the future in this setting where renowned names alongside Czech legends as well as young designers reinterpret the neoclassical taste of chandeliers with a contemporary twist by combining Czech glassmakers’ artisanal know-how and craftsmanship.

The Intergalactic blends ancient history and nature with inventive design, fine craftsmanship and modern technology.

Maxim Velcovsky – Memento Mori
The macabre Czech masterpiece known as the Sedlec Ossuary is one of twelve World Heritage Sites in the Czech Republic. It contains approximately of between 40,000 to 70,000 skeletons whose bones were artistically arranged by Frantisek Rint to form chapel decorations in 1870. Maxim Velcovsky pays homage to Rint’s actual bone chandeliers by imprinting their shapes into a glass form. The Latin phrase Memento Mori, reminding us to ‘remember death,’ became the essence of this object. It symbolizes birth and death as well as the disappearing crafts that are passed from generation to generation in Europe.

"We want to create a collection that is exclusive for the quality of the material and technique. Through the skeletons, violent and innocent, their direct graphic forms depict our times, which are extravagant and violent...”

Studio Job
Milano: Fuori Salone 2016 – Bisazza – Studio Job. At the flagship showroom Bisazza presented new decorative mosaics marked by a decidedly contemporary vibe, designed by the Studio Job duo: Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel.
Above. The Perished design embodies the neo-Gothic style. A graphic motif featuring animal skeletons portrays a taunting danse macabre. Created using a digital technique.

Bisazza – Studio Job.  In the Silhouette Turquoise pattern, we once again see the extremely personal, poetic expression of the Antwerp pair. Attentive research into detail and the “playful”, unexpected overlapping of everyday objects and figures of a different nature create a three-dimensional, hyper-decorated pattern.

Bisazza – Studio Job. The Industry Amber decorative motif alludes to Britain’s Industrial Revolution of the 1800s. In a modern and decidedly singular texture, symbolic objects from that period -- including steam engines, locomotive wheels, work tools and industrial buildings -- are juxtaposed, lending an effect of depth and wrought in warm shades of amber.
