Spotlight: How Lasvit created the glass chandelier on board GO

9 April 2021

The glass masterminds at Lasvit are experts in the creation of custom artworks that blend the boundaries of light and art. A recent custom project included the delivery of a bespoke showpiece to hang above a dining table on board the superyacht GO.

The 'Sea Waves' chandelier, crafted from traditional Bohemian crystal and enhanced by modern lighting technology, is made up of 378 glass rods that cluster together to create the effect of seagrass. Each glass rod has its own light source that illuminates it internally and highlights the subtle twisted-glass surface design. 

The effect is a beautiful talking point that softly illuminates the space above a large circular dining table, creating an intimate dining atmosphere. The table is edged by a band of turquoise enamelled metal, complemented by a band of polished macassar ebony, with a backlit white onyx centre. Its shiny surfaces reflect the dizzying pattern of a chandelier.

The studio chose a design by Katarina Kudějová-Fulínová, who said of the piece, “I was thinking about sailing the sea. You are ploughing the waters and observing the horizon, yet you can miss some wonders under the water’s surface. 'Sea Waves' is a piece of underwater enchantment, captured in the beauty of glass.”

The Sea Waves light installation was created in collaboration with H2 Yacht Design Studio, with two coordinating wall lights to accompany the striking central piece.
