Through the concept “The Heart Beats”, the company wants to pay tribute to the lively creativity that has animated the furnace since its founding and that has made possible the collaboration with famous designers such as Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti and Fulvio Bianconi since the first half of the 20th century. For Milan Design Week 2024, these collaborations are celebrated through projects that re-issue, pay homage to and are inspired by the works created by these designers and that show the DAMIANI Group’s intention to enhance the company’s heritage and VENINI’s artistic path, illustrating how the present is defined in the interweaving of memory and awareness of the world around us.

VENINI invites you to immerse yourself in a world of light, matter and creativity with a strong visual impact (Hall 9 Stand L06-L08). A monumental reproduction of the “Poliedri” cascading chandelier, designed by Carlo Scarpa for the “Italia ’61” International Exposition, occupies one side of the booth.

This lighting architecture, composed of several modular blown-glass elements of different shapes and sizes, shows the company’s ability to offer custom-made solutions for the domestic and contract sectors. Moreover, the installation is surrounded by semicircular mirrored walls that dialogue with the central element, involving visitors in a deep visual experience. A large screen on the floor tells the story of the work.

On the other side of the booth, the exhibition path winds among sinuous displays featuring the new collections. The focus of the exhibition is the new collection including unreleased and reissued Gio Ponti designs. Among the most important ones in VENINI’s history, the collaboration with Ponti has certainly left an indelible mark on the brand’s path. Therefore, to pay tribute to this creative relationship, VENINI has decided to launch a collection of reissued and unreleased items designed by the architect from the late 1940s.

Other new products

Among the other new products, VENINI presents the Clessidre Sommerse that expand the collection designed by Fulvio Bianconi and Paolo Venini in1957. A series of timeless jewels that showcase the skill of master glassmakers in combining highly complex working techniques.
