Milan 2013: these lamps by designer Arik Levy for glass firm Lasvit filter white light through red, green and blue bottle-shaped pendants.
The Jar RGB collection, for Czech glassware company Lasvit, comprises a series of bottle-shaped vessels designed to hang together in groups of three or seven.
Light is emitted through one translucent white glass lamp, while the coloured pieces made from clear glass hang alongside to create a form of RGB colour mixing.
Arik Levy unveiled the collection at Lasvit's exhibition at Via Stendhal 35 in the Tortona district of Milan last week. The designer also showed a collection of wooden furniture inspired by traditional Japanese footwear for British brand Modus at EDIT by Designjunction.
Other Lasvit products on show in Milan included a series of vases and lamps inspired by patchwork quilts by Japanese design studio Nendo.
Here's a short description from Lasvit:
Jar RGB - Arik Levy
Jar RGB is a lighting project connecting thin colourful glass blowing techniques and the idea of RGB colour mixing. Using white glass for one of the hanging jars allows it to turn into a large light bulb generating the light for the entire fixture.

Observing one jar through another and the space surrounding them gives one a unique and everlasting discovery of colour superimposition.
