Dezeen Showroom: designers Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus have created the Hidden light for Lasvit, which is available as a pendant or table lamp.

Lasvit's Hidden light features a metal fixture partially obscured within an oversized crystal-clear blown glass "cage".

The piece is technically challenging to create, not least because of its size — Lasvit describes it as being so heavy that creating it "stretches the limits of human abilities".

To achieve the surface effect, it also necessitated the creation of a special metal mould that Lasvit says was arduous to make but lasts for almost an eternity.

The light is meant to have symbolic meaning

According to Plecháč and Wielgus, the light is symbolic of how a person's "inner light cannot be contained".

"Sometimes, we might feel caged by society and its expectations, but when we concentrate on our inner energy, it can become a lantern that will open the door of this cage and set us free," said the designers.
