LASVIT is a Czech-based designer and manufacturer of bespoke lighting installations, ready-to-shine collections and glass for architecture.
Since its foundation, the company’s mission has been to inspire the world with the beauty of Bohemian glass. LASVIT creates pieces tailor-made for the place and the client and takes pride in storytelling design.
Born into a glassblowing family in Liberec, Czech Republic, its founder Leon Jakimič steers the company with the utmost respect for tradition, but also brings enthusiasm for cutting-edge design and innovation.
Headquartered in Novy Bor, the very heart of the glassmaking region, the company has offices in Prague but also in major world hubs like New York, London, Dubai or Hong Kong. Their lighting installations shine in more than 2 200 hotels, private residences, cruise ships and other public and private spaces all over the world.
Their employees often undertake very ambitious projects and installations which can span dozens of meters and weigh many tons. They work in 5 geographically-focused teams and an expert unit. From A to Z, the project is their responsibility. The teams feature designers, glass specialists, project managers, but also engineers, programmers, sales consultants or logistics specialists. What they all have in common is a true passion for their craft, a love of challenges and dislike for routine.
In 2018, their cutting-edge approach brought LASVIT the prestigious Milan Design Award, also known as the “design Oscar”. LASVIT’s headquarters are a true architectonic jewel. It features two carefully restored historic buildings and also includes two new structures – the glass house and the black house. Lasvit employees regularly meet at all-company summits and Leon Jakimič meets all new joinees at a special welcome lunch.
