Venini is the largest craftsman furnace in Murano. Tradition, skill, craftsman knowledge and famous co-operations showcase the Italian excellence of this famous house. It was founded in Venice, in 1921, by Paolo Venini and Giacomo Capellin and soon became a reference point in the creative glass panorama, also due to the work with leading international artists and designers who succeeded to explore all the possibilities offered by glass.
The stylistic identity which still marks the company is defined by the reinterpretation of traditional patterns, opening towards the artistic futurisms and the mastery of the processing techniques due to the contributions of the leading master glassmakers on Murano.
Since its foundation, Venini has worked with the best architects and designers in the world like Tomaso Buzzi, the award-winning Tobia Scarpa and his father Carlo Scarpa, the Swedish ceramist Tyra Lundgren, the brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana, the American painter and stylist Ken Scott, Fulvio Bianconi, the Finnish designer and sculptor Tapio Wirkkala and Alessandro Mendini, the Japanese Tadao Ando, GioPonti and Gae Aulenti.
Artworks signed by Venini are displayed in art museums around the world including the Cartier Foundation in Paris, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the London, the Metropolitan Museum, the MOMA in New York and the Triennale in Milan.
