The enchantment of transparency, material fluidity, and handcrafted uniqueness
Highlighting key traits of Murano glass handles by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez in partnership with Venini.
Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez have crafted the exquisite ‘Venezia’ collection, in partnership with Venini for the Italian company Fantini. These glass handles weave a tale of style, tradition, elegance, refinement, and opulence, offering a captivating narrative of timeless luxury.
The Venezia series conjures up these and other memories through its elegant material choice and the majestic colors of this ancient tale—white, black, and blue. This narrative is bound to unfold, driven by the pursuit of beauty.
For more than seven decades, Fantini has been dedicated to designing and crafting innovative products. The company is situated in Pella, on the shores of Lake Orta, where a tradition of metalworking has thrived, and over time, hubs for faucet and household goods production have emerged.
Murano glass handles made by Venini
These are two-tone handles crafted using distinctive ancient techniques of Murano glass artistry that Venini, a company rooted in the Venetian culture of the 1200s which gives life to unmistakable glass artworks, has always executed with unparalleled mastery, giving rise to unique pieces that enhance the quality and beauty of ‘handmade‘ craftsmanship. All versions carry a highly impactful and emotional visual appeal.
Venezia handles in milled and faceted glass
The handles feature a cylindrical shape, a pure and continuous roundness of the edges that puts the spotlight on the fluid effect of the color combinations: aquamarine/green, amethyst/amber, red/amber.
Glass plays a prominent role in the cylindrical versions, which are both milled and faceted, offering a blend of classical and contemporary aesthetics.
These versions are available in colors such as azure, amber, and white, in both transparent and opaque variations. The metal base closely mimics the faceted texture of the glass body, creating a seamless and harmonious design.
