Fungo Chandelier by Campana Brothers for Lasvit
Updated: Jan 8, 2020
The Fungo chandelier was inspired by the fascinating shape of a mushroom growing on wood. Yet this mushroom didn’t grow in the forest, but was discovered in the basement of Lasvit’s glassworks, where an ancient wooden glassblowing mold had succumbed to the ravages of humidity. The Campana Brothers chose to blend this newfound accidental theme with Lasvit’s glassmaking tradition and fuse their techniques with natural materials. The resulting artwork displays a striking contrast between the formal rigidity of the chandelier’s wooden structure and the blown-glass that appears to emerge spontaneously from the wood.
