Italian Version

An exhibition of works by Peter Marino and creations by Marco Piva, the new Art Director of the historic Italian brand: “Poliedro-tech”, “Bloom”, “Ballerina”, “Eyes”, “Moons”, “Alieno”.
Also on view: the reissue in magenta of the icons “Fazzoletto”, “Ballotton”, “Decò” e “Opalino”.
Allow us to add one thing, Venini is Venini
Venini is the History, Venini is over 100 years of art in blown glass and Venini is a brand you are going to visit regardless.
I hope you like the photos in the photo gallery, but they don’t even remotely make the emotion it feels to be with them in person.

Series “99.80” by Venini – Designer: Gio Ponti
The desire to make a stylistic renewal, while remaining faithful to the fine craftsmanship of the Italian tradition, constitutes the solid basis on which the perfect collaboration between the Venini company and the designer Gio Ponti is founded and it is from this synergy that the Gio Ponti “99.80” series was created in 1946: the combination of clean lines and bright colours still make it a classic appreciated by connoisseurs all over the world. Its absolute originality derives from the alternation of curved arms, each in glass of a different colour.
Everything in the world must be full of colour” (Gio Ponti)

Alieno by Venini – Designer: Studio Marco Piva
Designed by Studio Marco Piva, the “Alieno” lamp is an evocative object with an ironic “extraterrestrial” silhouette: a table lamp, with a rechargeable battery.
“A luminous object with a sinuous and fun appeal designed by Studio Marco Piva, a small alien that illuminates table centerpieces, consoles, shelves and bedsides tables. “Alieno” is a lamp with translucent coloured finish available in a variety of chromatic shades” (Venini)

Ballerina Collection” by Venini – Designer: Studio Marco Piva
“We are introducing a new collection of suspension lamps, appliqué, vases and centerpieces in our iconic coloured glass, made with different finishes and available in different shapes and sizes”.(Venini)

Balloton lamp” by Venini
“The “Balloton” process is one of the most fascinating of the Murano glass art.
The most important part of the processing is the pressure that the Glass Master sets on the hot, unshaped glass, inside a specific solid metal mould transforming the external surface of the glass in a rhomboid pattern”.(Venini)

Kiritam” by Venini – Designer: Ettore Sottsass
“Its name evokes its ancient meaning: “crown”, from the Sanskrit term kirīṭam. Its shape recalls those of the most worshipped and depicted Hindu deities. But gold gives way to glass. Kiritam is available in a numbered edition table lamp version.”(Venini)

Fazzoletto Volante” by Venini – Designer Studio Marco Piva
Conceived by Studio Marco Piva, “Fazzoletto Volante” is the new reinterpretation of our iconic vase originally designed in 1948 by Fulvio Bianconi and Paolo Venini. A playful height-adjustable blown glass suspension or table lamp is proposed as a single element or aggregated in multiple compositions”.(Venini)

Abat-jour” by Venini
“The elliptical elements of these table and floor lamps are hand-blown and crafted using the “balloton” technique”(Venini)

Fantasmino” by Venini
“Fantasmino is a table lamp made of opal blown glass obtained by overlapping the milky glass with other glass, the opal glass is blown and handmade.‎ The structure is made of burnished metal.‎
Fantasmino’s shape makes you think of Venini’s iconic “Fazzoletto” vase, designed in 1948, but it gets a contemporary attitude thanks to its portable purpose. Available in the five trendy colors, all in opal glass, it becomes a fun and surprising home presence” (Venini)
