Description

Venini was founded in 1925 on the Venetian Island of Murano. Since then it has become one of the most influential glass factories of the modern era. In the 1950s, while still a student at the Universita di Architettura in Venice, Vignelli was commissioned to produce designs for the glass blowers of Venini.This pendant has a layer of grey Murano glass coating a layer of white opaline glass giving a soft, diffused illumination. Even though the stem at the top is slightly offset the bottom of the lamp hangs absolutely flat. An indication of the level of skill of the master craftsmen within Venini.
