The design chandelier “Fungo” also has an interesting history. The duo found inspiration in the mushrooms that had developed due to the moisture in the basement of the Lasvit glass factory. An old mold for blowing glass was attacked by these fungi. The transparent, hand-blown elements were attached to a wooden structure as if they were protruding from the wooden surface. The glass elements represent the fungus that grows from wood through moisture. The aim of the designers was still to create a contrast between the rigid wooden construction of the chandelier and the asymmetrical glass bubbles.
