continuing luminaire’s innovative use of design to raise awareness and funds for cancer research, the groundbreaking love philanthropic series of charity auctions returns for its fourth edition this fall with glaslove. glass, characterized by the duality of its strong yet fragile nature, is a poetically fitting medium that reflects the spirit of those battling the disease. for this special event, highly collectible, one-off, limited-edition, or prototype works created in glass glass were created by distinguished international designers and design manufacturers, including nendo, piero lissoni, marcel wanders, tadao ando, naoto fukasawa, patricia urquiola, fernando and humberto campana, glas italia, lasvit, arcade, and venini, among others.
