Le Stanze del Vetro
The autumn exhibition “Venini: Light 1921 – 1985” at the Stanze del Vetro, curated by Marino Barovier, intends to explore glassworks in the field of lighting, from a small to a large scale, tracing an excursus through its most significant projects.
One of the most important areas of Murano glass production has always been lighting, both for domestic use and for large public and private environments, including ministerial buildings, post offices, theatres and hotels.
In particular, the Venini glassworks distinguished themselves with significant results in this field thanks to their constant renewal and characteristic openness towards the world of design. These are both aspects that have made the brand a reference point for a lot of important national and international architects.
The exhibition will feature a handpicked selection of objects conceived by the many designers who have collaborated with Venini, illustrating how the theme of light was tackled in the various decades in a chronological arc that goes from 1921 to 1985.
In addiction to this, the exhibition will feature an hommage to Carlo Scarpa by rebuilding the architect’s iconic polyhedral chandelier, designed for the “Italia ’61” exhibition.
