Carlo Scarpa ‘Poliedri’ Chandelier for Venini, Murano, Italy, circa 1960

US$8,986.31

About

A rare ‘polyhedral’ crystal chandelier designed by architect and designer Carlo Scarpa in the late 1950s. Produced by the prestigious Muranese Company, Venini, the sixty-five hand blown poliedri consist of clear, pink and blue colored crystals, each possessing a unique iridescent lustre on the surface of the glass. This pioneering glass technique is most unusual and has become one of Venini’s most important designs in their catalogue of works. Signed in the frame.
