The historic Murano glass factory VENINI shows its creative journey over nearly one hundred years in the field of Art Light, between iconic designs and new creations. The Art Light pieces have a timeless look, a high artistic tenor, and an intrinsic manufacturing value, and they are conceived to meet every type of lighting and decorative need: wall lamps, floor lamps, table lamps, and chandeliers in classical and modern styles, created by top designers ever since the company’s foundation. Authors the likes of Napoleone Martinuzzi, Gio Ponti, Carlo Scarpa have contributed to this division, and alongside them, some more contemporary ones such as Ettore Sottsass, Guggisberg&Baldwin, Fratelli Campana, Massimiliano and Doriana Fukas, Peter Marino, and many others.
The experiments on light refracted through the glass and the research into the ancient techniques for modelling the raw material have long occupied the VENINI style centre, which has always focused on the creation of modular elements that, over time, have become iconic: Balloton, Esprit, Trilobi, Triedi, and Nastri. These forms are immediately identifiable as VENINI products and can be combined to create lighting architectures, conceived to decorate private settings as well as important public spaces.
VENINI’s stylistic and productive versatility and its avant-garde approach allows it to create bespoke architectural lighting designs and installations for the contract sector, such as the projects realized for the Adlon Kempiski hotel in Berlin, for Bulgari’s New Curiosity Shop in Rome, for Cracco’s Carlo & Camilla in Duomo bistrot, and the lighting for Gruppo Guelfi’s Saigon, Shimokita, and Oyster Bar restaurants in Milan.
