It is said that the sphere is the most perfect shape in the universe. Sometimes, you can find the entire cosmos in this single shape, and Spacey captures the immense beauty of the universe by means of a special technique called lithyalin. It looks like gemstone, but is actually glass. This technique was invented in Northern Bohemia more than 200 years ago and has now been resurrected in the same region by Czech designer Lukáš Novák.


Lukáš Novák was born in Nový Bor (* 1987), the capital of Czech glassmaking. He is an artist, multidisciplinary designer, creative spirit and a lover of glass with a great passion for art, craft, and history. He lives and works in Prague. He specializes in the exploration and processing of materials, which is also why he often does his own research and experimentation. Working with spaces and creating site-specific installations remains very important for him, and he considers glass to be a medium which is able to communicate emotions and thoughts through various forms and narratives. Lukáš’s diverse portfolio includes vases, mirrors, lights, art objects and installations, and he also designs for commercial companies, such as Lasvit, Pilsner Urquell, or Rückl.

About the company

In the family of Leon Jakimič, the founder of Lasvit, the glassmaking tradition has been handed down for generations. The company name was created in 2007 by joining together the Czech words “láska,” meaning love, and “svit,” meaning light, and they have since become leaders in their field. Lasvit’s work shines most in special glass installations, kinetic crystal sculptures and glass facades. They use the know-how of small workshops as well as large glassworks, and in 2017 they acquired the famous Ajeto glassworks in Lindava which focuses on artistic glass production. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Maxim Velčovský, they have collaborated with world design leaders, such as Daniel Libeskind, Kengo Kuma, Zaha Hadid, Campana Brothers, Nendo and others, helping put Czech glassmaking back on the map.
