Designers were invited to share their demons by Czech glass manufacturer Lasvit this year. Inside Milan’s Teatro Gerolamo, 16 creatives, including Daniel Libeskind, Maarten Baas and Nendo will show their take on monstrous forms. The eclectic array of designs range from whimsical to evoking folklore and all use both traditional and groundbreaking techniques including hand-blown, cast, fused and cut glass.
