Lasvit Monster Cabaret

For Fuorisalone 2018, the Czech team of designers that goes by the name of Lasvit presented its own installation, Monster Cabaret, in the prestigious setting of Teatro Gerolamo in Milan. The theatre, an architectural jewel from the second half of the 18th century, opened its doors again for the occasion thirty years after they last closed, following a painstaking restoration.

Monster Cabaret won Lasvit the coveted Milano Design Award 2018 for the best installation of Fuorisalone.

Above the theatre’s stage hung the composition Neverending Glory, by designers Jan Plechac and Henry Wielgus. Made up of over a hundred hand-worked crystal chandeliers, it formed a huge “curtain” of light that interacted with the burlesque and cabaret show put on by the Prague Burlesque dancers.

Meanwhile, the upper-level gallery housed the Monsters collection, consisting of glass vases and sculptures created by leading designers: Alessandro Mendini, the Campana Brothers, Fabio Novembre and Daniel Libeskind, among others.

To ensure the Monsters design pieces were precisely lit, Lasvit used fifty Pivot projectors with 12° narrow optics and a warm white light colour (2700K).
