Likening the artistry of Lasvit’s master craftspeople blowing glass to a skilled musician playing brass instruments, renowned Canadian design studio Yabu Pushelberg were inspired to explore the “many parallels between music and glass blowing” when devising the Miles lighting collection.
Represented in both abstract and actual ways, the similarities have resulted in a series of elegant pendants and floor lamps that are at once poetic and cerebral.
Miles’s physical composition sees simple cylindrical graphite-hued glass casings containing fluted and tinted glass horn-like shapes within; when the individual columns are stacked, the inner elements are linked and become a rhythmic sculpture of light.
The conceptual evocation of music is represented by the tangible constraints of the material – glass – and the innovative techniques needed to master its production – the the designers, this careful and coordinated orchestration is akin to the magnetic performance of a trumpet player’s solo or jazz vocalist’s scat. Multiple size variations are offered for both the Miles pendant and floor lights.
