Lasvit the visionary Czech Republic glass manufacturer will install “Infinity,” an elegant glass lighting sculpture and “Hydrogene Bar,” an illuminated crystal bar, at the Czech House during the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The 7-meter glass piece will adorn the mezzanine, the public space of the Czech House.
