Atmospheric chandelier made by Gino Vistosi and manufactured by Vistosi, Murano Italy 1970. Large glass blown glass shade with the beautiful ‘murrine’ pattern. The lamp gives a nice glow when lit. The shade in a neutral white tone which makes it a perfect fit every modern interior easily. The structure is from white painted metal. A stunning feature is the drip-like form that sort of softly comes out of the shade and ends with the light bulb.


Murrine is a traditional Italian glass working technique. It involves creating intricate patterns or images within a glass object by layering and fusing different colors of glass rods together. The resulting rod is then stretched and sliced into thin cross-sections, revealing the detailed pattern. The term “murrine” is derived from Murrina, an ancient Roman city where mosaic glasswork was prevalent. The technique became especially associated with the island of Murano in Venice, Italy, which has a long history of glassmaking. Skilled glass artisans use murrine to craft various glass items, such as beads, paperweights, and decorative art pieces.


Gio-Batta Vistosi was appointed Gastaldo dell’Arte, head of the glassmakers’ guild and representative of the owners of the Murano furnaces. At the end of World War II, the company began to focus on the production of lighting products with Gino and Luciano Vistosi. That was a story of passion and insatiable search for the new, which led Vistosi to start important collaborations. After the end of World War II Guglielmo Vistosi, heir of the Gazzabin family, opened a new furnace in Murano.
