SLS LUX Brickell - Lasvit Starburst Chandelier
Lasvit - Czech crystal manufacturer
Designed by Yabu Pushelberg, manufactured by Lasvit, photography by Kris Tamburello and SLS LUX Brickell
Winner in Chandeliers
Yabu Pushelberg collaborated with Czech crystal manufacturer Lasvit to debut the first installation from their lighting collection - Cipher. The collection is comprised of a series of delicate hand-blown crystal cylindrical pieces that have been cut with clean, clear lines. The cylinders are joined together by champagne-gold finished connections that are the hidden sources of light, creating a soft overall effect. The cylinders themselves can be reconfigured into countless different horizontal and vertical combinations making the pendant fit just as appropriately in a hotel lobby as it does in a residential home.
The versatility of the cylinders allowed the studio to alter the natural form of the pendant to hand-craft a multidimensional starburst chandelier, spanning 15.5 feet in length. The custom piece currently hangs above the monolithic striated stone reception desk at SLS LUX Brickell in Miami - a hotel designed by Yabu Pushelberg.
