This Unique Lighting Design Strikes A Connection Between Music & Glass Blowing

When you’re doing up your living room, you spend a substantial amount of time picking the perfect sofa or the ideal coffee table, but we don’t really dedicate much time to picking the right lighting design! Today, lighting designs are total works of art – they’re unique and innovative, elevating a space with their mere presence. Nowadays, designers are creating unique, functional, and powerful pieces that not only light up a living space but also add an extra oomph factor! These lighting designs not only help you see in the dark, but they also function as an attractive and visually appealing piece. And a lighting design I recently loved is the Miles Pendant Lamp by Yabu Pushelberg for Lasvit.

Designer: Yabu Pushelberg for Lasvit

Designed by Yabu Pushleberg for the Czech brand Lasvit, the Miles Pendant light is a beautiful lighting piece. Through this lighting design, the designer wanted to concoct a poetic connection between music and glass blowing, resulting in this rather mesmerizing lighting solution. It is made up of multiple segments of double-walled glass. It features a simple outer layer, which perfectly contrasts with the complex yet subtle fluted inner diffuser, creating a surreal and pleasing contradiction.

As you take a look at the shape of the lighting fixture, you are instantly reminded of brass instruments, which Lasvit also says is similar to the process of craftspeople blowing glass. The lighting piece is created to deep dive into the connection between music and glass-making, with the gentle design emphasizing the balance between innovation and the physical limitation of materials and techniques that must be tended to.

According to Lasvit, the making of double-walled glass objects is quite a task for glassblowers, as it needs high levels of control and accuracy to be maintained. The light features a finish with a metal coating technology, which provides the pendant with quite an aesthetically pleasing look even when it is switched off. The end result is a premium lighting design with a sophisticated allure that allows it to merge with modern living spaces.
