Venini occupies a very special and unique place in the world of twentieth century Italian glass. Founded in 1921 by Paolo Venini, a lawyer from Milan passionate about glass, Venini created an unrivaled expression of modernism in glass which the company has maintained throughout its eighty years of existence.
From the very beginning Venini engaged artists and architects, both Italian and foreign, to develop its products: Paolo Martinuzzi, Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti in the thirties and forties, Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Jamie Carpenter and Toots Zynsky in the sixties and seventies; Mario Bellini, Alessandro Mendini and Ettore Sottsass in the eighties and nineties to mention a few.
