Monumental Outdoor Glass Installation to Be Unveiled at Milan Design Week

19 April 2024 @ 6:45 am

Through “Re/Creation,” Lasvit —a leader in hand-made glassmaking— sets up a sanctuary for creative escapism amid the hustle and bustle of Milan’s Salone Week. In the serene embrace of Palazzo Isimbardi, “Re/Creation” offers a space where minds are free to wander, inspired by the fluid grace of molten glass. The title refers to the innovative technique of fused glass, where the essence of fused glass lies in letting go. Extremely hot melted glass is allowed to relax, spread and take shape of a form designed for the glass to lie on. Its own weight and gravity take care of the rest. Similarly, a creative mind is most prolific and innovative when relaxed, free of everyday pressures and demands. This is why, at the beautiful location of Palazzo Isimbardi, Lasvit creates a haven for creatives to escape, recharge and relax.
