Clartés

Staircase lighting, London

A staircase lighting feature is a unique opportunity to craft a sculpture that creates a sense of movement and transformation when viewed from any angle.  The glittering ice crystals of a passing comet, speeding beyond our reach, were the inspiration for this piece.  Complementing the fresh white staircase, each glass segment was hand-blown and shaped to refract and reflect light to brighten the space.

 

Every single piece of Clartés glassware is handmade in our Bohemian glass factory and metal workshop located in the Czech Republic. Our methods of luxury glass manufacturing were first created in the early 1900’s by the highly sought-after artisans Antonin Jilek and Frantisek Wetter. Their legacy is a workshop that specialises in Bohemian glass and crystal, internationally recognised for its beauty, high quality craftsmanship and innovative flare.

Generations of glassblowers have made the factory their home and together we are passionate in planning the future and development of new products and cutting-edge design.

More than a manufacturing workshop, we are all one big family who will continue to believe in our products and our vision of Clartés as the forefront of contemporary glass design.
