Venini Masterpieces: KUKINTO

More than a knight, he is an oriental warrior from the Land of the Rising Sun. Kukinto rises with proud majesty, turning its soft and shiny shapes to the sky like the colored blade of a mortal katana. Designed in the nineties by Timo Sarpaneva for Venini, Kukinto crosses the oceans of time like a fragment of crystal kissed by the rainbow.

Venini is the essence of exclusivity. It resides in the exclusive techniques that have been researched over time and which then contaminated genres, styles and artistic inspirations.

Venini Masterpiece: GEACOLOR

Gae Aulenti finds in Venini an earthly, primordial, almost volcanic inspiration. Here among our knights there is a young warrior, who was born from Mother Earth, Geacolor is the quintessence of the cosmos. With its multilayer, Geacolor transmits the power of union and the strength of complementarity. The Geacolor vase, among all, stands out for its rough and granite appearance that surprises for the nature of the element it is made of. A glass that does not show itself, that hides behind an armor, shaped as if it were an earth’s crust. Invincible and destined to persist over the centuries, a small colored planet that hides the delicacy of the art of Murano. The delicacy of the woman is kept behind an impenetrable armor.

Venini boasts the involvement of great artists and architects in the creation of new shapes and chromatic mergers, without betraying the calm and wisdom that is preserved in the Murano craftsmanship and that resists temporary upheavals.

Venini Masterpieces VERONESE

He is the first Venini knight who owes his life to the artist Vittorio Zecchin, who made it in 1921 to pay homage to Paolo Veronese, a sixteenth-century painter, author of the Venetian Annunciation, in which he represented an elegant glass vase next to the Virgin. In addition to recreating the refined vase we find in Veronese, Zecchin makes it the presentation image of the Venini company, which promotes it as an official logo. Over time, the Veronese vase has encountered many color versions, retaining its shape and a privileged place in the heart of Italian design and style in the world.

    The “Veronese” vases from Venini are a design by the artist Vittorio Zecchin from 1921. The artist, who was Venini’s art director from 1921 to 1925, took inspiration from a painting by Paolo Veronese, finished in 1580, which is today kept at the Accademia Galleries in Venice: “The Annunciation”. The glass work was so successful, that it became the firm’s logo.

ORIGINS

Murano. During the early 1920s, from an entrepreneurial union between a Venetian antique dealer and a Milanese expert in glass processing, what we all know as the Venini company was born. Already in its first five years of life, the Venetian company, under the artistic direction of the painter Vittorio Zecchin, embarked on a journey in the evasion of schemes related to tradition, and thus let itself go towards experimentation, avant-garde art, and manufacturing techniques increasingly innovative. Successful exhibitions and decorative arts exhibitions begin, these conquer the Italian and – above all – foreign scene. Venini starts collaborations with esthetics, painters, designers and renowned architects of the time, and touches the highest artistic excellence and, thus, matures a high level of experimentation. This growth, announced at the dawn of the sixties, is the turning point towards the affirmation of the Venini style in the world of Contemporary Art and Modern Design, where the rules of avant-garde aesthetics bow to the mastery of the ancient art of making blown and handmade glass.

    The uniqueness of VENINI’s production is given by handcraft procedures followed during all working processes.
    Some shades or bubbles, that might be found on the glass, underline that every single piece is entirely handmade and
    even if similar to the others, each single piece is unique.
    Where are my Glasses? by Ron Arad:
    A very frequently asked question is “where do your ideas come from?”. The answer is “ideas are
    all around me – too many of them if anything – the problem is not where to find ideas but which
    ideas you give time to. Occasionally an idea jumps the queue and is impossible to ignore.”
    I spent a lot of time recently designing glasses. I spent a lot of time recently blowing glass, so the
    idea of blowing glass into glasses sprouted from the verbal pun into reality.
    An idea that jumped the queue!
    The process started – sketches, modelling, rendering, making iron frames and the incredible
    Venini masters blowing molten glass into glasses.
    Not only an amazing exciting time by the furnaces, but also my favourite results – getting
    something better than one deserves.
    So, where are my glasses? Well, it’s transparent!
