René Roubíček´s chandelier designed for Lasvit named by its author "And why not!" refers to his lifelong experimentation and searching compositions and forms incarnated in glass.
The chandelier´s emotionally intense sculptural form resembles a flash and is an evolution of Roubíček´s core designs based on dynamic abstraction. Light gliding on large smoothly polished surfaces while absorbed by the mass of the glass creates a unique atmosphere.
René Roubíček (1922 – 2018) is a Czech glass-working icon. Glass art as an independent art discipline was actually born in Czechoslovakia, and it was first introduced to the world by Mr. Roubíček, well over half a century ago. His spatial and dimensional abstract compositions, combining metal and glass, caused a sensation at the 1958 Expo in Brussels. Subsequently, Roubíček won the Grand Prix Expo award. His work is represented in many major galleries worldwide.
There is only one way to bring together artists, designers, glassmakers, engineers and managers. By the passion for beauty.
