Venini : a Passion for the Art of Blown Glass in Murano

Designers conceive collections of blown glass vases which are renewing this art born in Murano, Italy.

One of the islands of the Venetian Lagoon, Murano has been famous since the 13th century for the quality of their artisan glassblowers. The foundries were visited by the sovereigns of Europe to order the personalised glassware for their palaces. This expertise in the art of glassblowing has been passed on, like the reputation of the Venini makers, masters of the art of transforming sand into crystal. 

Murano, the island of the art of glass and Venini 

The power of natural colours and the inspiration of international artists have been the frame of the firm’s collections for 90 years. The techniques of transparency reflect the elegance and the quality of the « Made in Italy » mark, with an immediately recognisable design. With these techniques, the master-glassblowers give life to the most fantastic creations, touching objects of the art of the table with enthralling nuances of light.
