The ceiling lights are distinguished by hand-blown glass pendants with conical shapes modelled on geological formations close to the Lasvit glassworks, which were formed by historic volcanic activity.
Each pendant has a textured surface to mimic the lava flow from a volcano, while also diffracting light in interesting ways. This texture was informed by Velčovský's childhood memories of making mountain sculptures with crinkled paper.
"The shape itself looks like a model of a volcano as if it were created by a small child, who made it from crumpled paper and placed a lightbulb inside," said Velčovský, Lasvit's creative director.
"I wanted to create a symbol of the volcano – a pyramid shaped by means of crumpling and deforming sheets so that I might be able to create a specific surface structure which would diffract light," he added. "It is thus a little model volcano hailing from our volcanic lands which went extinct long ago."
