Born in Veneto in 2008 by Catherine Urban – Casarialto Atelier is a brand of tableware and furnishing accessories that skillfully embodies her deep passion for glassmaking as well as represents a seamless fusion of international design knowledge and alluring craftsmanship.
With her modern and practical spirit harmoniously intertwined with the centuries-old roots of Venetian savoir-faire – the brand has seamlessly established direct collaborations with master glassmakers from across the globe.
“My encounter with glass was immediate – right from my first instinctive fascination, I felt the need to study and research this complex material as well as its production processes and as a result I founded Casarialto Atelier” says Urban.
By exploring new territories and experimenting with less familiar techniques – the brand crafts refreshingly new yet unexpected projects.
Conceived and promoted by Alfio Pozzoni and Alessandro Brizioli with the support of a team of professionals as well as a scientific committee – Tornasole is a conceptual one-of-a-kind lamp that combines the art of free hand blown glass, which is Casarialto’s signature, with sophisticated technology.
Spherical in shape with the addition of two small branches, each housing a small bird – this eclectic object is supported by a chrome-plated base that stores the air quality detection device.
“Beautifully reminiscent of a poetic mini-observatory – it further changes shades of color to warn us when to ventilate the space we live in, increasing awareness about our surroundings” Urban adds.
