Balloton Luce Hand-Blown Murano Glass Portable Lamp

$660

The Murano lamps in Venini’s Balloton collection take their name from the technique used to make them. During hot working, masters blow glass into a metal mold – the interior of which is studded with pyramid-shaped spikes – to achieve the cross-relief effect. When switched on, with one of three brightness settings selected via touch, these water-resistant, LED-powered pieces cast kaleidoscopic bursts across the room.

Venini

Venini is one of the oldest Venetian glass masters, established in 1921 by Paolo Venini who yearned for something original. From new layered glass techniques, to reimagining the 16th-century mezza filigrana, the brand redefined glassblowing aesthetics; embracing the avant-garde, while nodding to past traditions. For our exclusive collaboration, we reworked Venini’s most-celebrated Fazzoletto vase, originally made in 1948.
