To create her shimmering jellyfish-like Skyphos 1 chandelier, Kateřina Smolíková used glass blowing, melting, and casting techniques. The lucent form looks delicate, but her careful selection of materials and savvy design process have yielded to a robust lighting fixture. We can imagine how a sea of these spectacular lights would look when hung from above, hypnotizing those beneath.

Smolíková is a student focusing on glass design at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Her Skyphos 1 chandelier has earned her the Outstanding Student Design Award [4].
