Founded in 1920 on the famed Venetian island of Murano, Italy, Venini Glassworks honors the uncompromising nature of its master craftsmen by tirelessly seeking the avant-garde. Whether exploring new, rich colors and textures of glass or introducing such elements as the decorative filaments that have now become a hallmark of Murano glass, Venini has been pivotal in moving the art form beyond its traditional limitations and making it truly contemporary.Through innovative original designs as well as collaborations with internationally renowned artists and architects, no other glassmaker has done as much as Venini to extend the tradition of Venetian glass into the modern era. The company’s bold vision and superior craft has resulted in Venini glass and lighting pieces being displayed as part of the collections of such museums as The Museum of Modern Art, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Centre Georges Pompidou and The Art Institute of Chicago. In Fall 2013, one of Venini’s key early masters will be the subject of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Venetian Glass by Carlo Scarpa: The Venini Company, 1932-1947.Venini’s nearly century-long commitment to both progress and perfection allows them to offer a collection of art glass and lighting that is as daring as it is exquisite.
