Czech glassmaking company, Lasvit, receives honour for its installation Monster Cabaret,  presented at Milan Design Week 2018 

Lasvit’s Monster Cabaret has outshined more than 1500 exhibitions in the city of design and been awarded the prestigious Milano Design Award for 2018. The main category award rewards the installation which best ‘interprets a contemporary design and a future conceptual vision’.

The ceremony took place at the stage of Teatro Gerolamo. The award was handed over by the founder of the award Dino Lupelli and Cristina Tajani, the Councilor of Milan for fashion and design. The jury of the Milan Design Award had to research some essential aspects of events in the city: involvement, vision, contemporaneity, relationship with the city and aesthetics.

"I am happy and honoured that the jury has chosen Lasvit among so many beautiful presentations,” said Lasvit founder Leon Jakimič.

“We wanted to show the exceptional Monster collection in a different, edgy, daring way. Being given this award just underlines our vision to be the most inspirational glass making company in the world.”

Lasvit brings to Milanese Teatro Gerolamo a daring concept of glass Monsters, an outcome of a symphony of well-respected designers with the best bohemian artisans. Beside this premiering collection, Lasvit presents also signature glass installations. At the stage of Gerolamo dominates composition of 108 small Neverending Glory chandeliers, the admired and best-selling collection of the company, and in the middle of the auditorium: The Independant, the First of Pendants Rising from the Floor. Exhibition complements beautiful dancers from Prague burlesque.

The Milano Design Awards were produced by Elita and Fuorisalone.it, and were created to recognise the events of the Milan Design Week.
