Lighting and glass specialist, LASVIT together with Hong Kong Designers Ed Ng and Terence Ngan of AB Concept have launched the FLUX Collection, available at COLOURLIVING 

Lasvit and AB Concept officially launched the FLUX collection in Hong Kong with COLOURLIVING. The collection previously premiered at 2017's Euroluce segment of the Milano furniture fair. The collection marks AB Concept and LASVIT's first designer-lighting collaboration after their long-term partnership on bespoke projects across Asia Pacific.

The FLUX Collection symbolises light reflecting off the ocean in shallow water and the traces left by the receding tide, while the layered texture is reminiscent of Asian watercolour paintings. The new FLUX collection entails a floor lamp, table lamp and wall sconce.

"Terence and I believe in storytelling, that's actually why we wanted to collaborate with Lasvit in the first place. We see a lot of similar principles in the creative process we go through when telling a story," explained Ed Ng, Co-Founder and Principal of AB Concept."With the aim to become the most inspirational glassmakers in the world, we're keen to look for stories behind the artwork we are creating. The design AB Concept brought to us wakes up your imagination and spreads the beauty throughout light reflections," said Leon Jakimič, President and Founder of LASVIT.

The design duo made multiple visits to Lasvit's workshop in Prague to realise their vision with Lasvit's team of artisans. To morph a classic spherical design into a barchetta (little boat) form, each final lamp is executed in extremely thick hand-blown crystal wrapped around a metal former. Its organic lines trap and refract light between the layers to create a deep radiance and the impression of water in motion, whereas the double-sided metal base adds sophistication.Processed with VSCO with 6 preset"FLUX is not meant to illuminate a room entirely," said Terence Ngan, Principal and Co-Founder of AB Concept. "It's intended to set a tone to your visual experience. It's bright enough for you to be able to navigate through a space, but dim enough to please other senses beyond the eyes." AB Concept believe it is of great importance to fill a space with mood and warmth, to create something as detailed but delicate as FLUX serves the purpose of touching people's senses.

Each lamp is hand-blown using a metal mold to provide its unique appearance. The clear top meets with inner and outer hand-painted gold and platinum layers, referencing the decoration of traditional Asian ceramics. Its organic lines trap and refract light between the layers to create a deep radiance and the impression of water in motion. While the wavy appearance on the glass evokes ambiguity, the double-sided metal base adds sophistication.Flux by EdNg_TerenceNgan (5)Flux collection by EdNg_TerenceNgan (6)
