  • Catalogue Essay

    Following Carlo Scarpa’s departure from Venini, the artist Fulvio Bianconi became artistic director. Under Bianconi’s leadership, the company produced some of its most graphic and groundbreaking designs, which are now considered masterpieces of postwar Italian glass design. Though it is not possible to definitively ascribe the present lot’s design to Bianconi, it is assuredly in the style of his work at Venini. In particular, the floor lamp relates to his vase, model no. 4409 from 1951, which also featured glass with vertical polychrome bands.
