The Ice chandelier by Daniel Libeskind is made up of clear glass cells blown into angular moulds, creating icicle-like forms.
These pieces are arranged in a cluster and suspended from a reflective triangular plate. The glass sections can be reconfigured into different shapes.
When hung below a light source, the light shines through the glass shafts and illuminates the edges.
The glass pieces were hand-blown by craftsmen at Lasvit's Czech Republic factory.
"It is so gratifying to collaborate with skilled workers whose expertise derives from centuries of design intelligence and artistic ambition, yet who are willing to experiment and do things differently to help realise my ideas," said Libeskind.
"I am always mindful when designing products, just as I am as an architect, to create something truly unique and functional," he added.
The Ice chandelier will be exhibited at Officine Stendhal, Via Stendhal 35, in Milan's Tortona district.
