Vistosi’s Lichena Collection Plays With Light and Silhouette

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

A few years ago, I went to Switzerland in the middle of summer. I visited Mt Titlis, and at the top of the mountain it was snowing and there was an ice cave. Plunging from the roof were sparkling ice stalictites, refracting light from every angle. It was just amazing!

So it was obvious that when I saw the new Lichena lighting collection from Murano glass manufacturer Vistosi, I would fall in love.

Made from crystal glass, the dramatic yet delicate lights can add a really glamorous touch to a home that is appropriately decorated.

Designed by Mauro Olivieri, the collection is edgy and contemporary, it was unveiled for the first time in Milan at Euroluce during Salone del Mobile, the Lichena collection embodies pure form with texture and transparency, enabling an intricate interplay between light and silhouettes through the crystal.

The collection of Lichena lamps is available in multiple fittings including as a floor, pendant, and suspension lamp.
