The historic VENINI brand, that is celebrating its centennial this year, takes centre stage at the Fuorisalone of Milan Design Week: the most important event in the world for the design and furnishing sector that this year will be held from 4 to 10 September.
Through its one hundred year history, VENINI has succeeded in establishing a dialogue between the millenary culture of the art of glass and the creativity of artists and designers such as Vittorio Zecchin, Napoleone Martinuzzi, Tomaso Buzzi, Tyra Lungren, Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti, Paolo Venini, Fulvio Bianconi, Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Thomas Stearns, Ludovico and Alessandro Diaz De Santillana, Laura de Santillana, Tobia Scarpa, Benjami Moore, Dan Dailey, Toots Zinsky, Toni Zuccheri, Gae Aulenti, Ettore Sottsass, Mimmo Rotella, Alessandro Mendini, Monica Guggisberg and Philip Baldwin, Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas, Cini Boeri, Rodolfo Dordoni, Giorgio Vigna, Tadao Ando, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Flo Perkins, Fabio Novembre, Michela Cattai, Mario Bellini, Studio Job, Barber & Osgerby, Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture, Ron Arad and Peter Marino, among others. The company’s appeal has always attracted talents and creative individuals from around the world, giving them the desire and freedom to express themselves and tell their stories. This encounter has given life to particularly rich artistic production in terms of style, shape, and expressive languages.
Since the company was founded, the master glass-makers have always been the heart and strength of the glass company; in the world of glass, lessons are passed down with words, gestures and movements. These noble artisans dedicate most of their lives to the art of glass, evermore perfecting their abilities and skills. Their techniques express the rational soul of the works, the sum of the rules that make the transformation of an idea or a design into reality possible.
For the Fuorisalone, VENINI is presenting “Art, Beauty and Made In Italy”: an exhibit in its flagship store on Via Montenapoleone in Milan, of the creations conceived to celebrate its Centennial and some novelties: Pyros Centenario and Lapilli by Emmanuel Babled, the revisiting of Tiara Luce by Francesco Lucchese and Foliae by Dodo Arslan.
