About

Beautiful orange hanging lamp, this model is also called Ui. (The shape of an Onion). These lamps are mouth blown and this is also called Murano glass. The inside is always white. This lamp unfortunately no longer has stickers of vistosi. Alessandro Pianon was born in Venice, Italy in 1931. He studied architecture at the University of Venice. In 1956, he worked at Vistosi, where he designed the company's logo. In 1962 he opened his own design studio. Pianon died in Venice in 1984. Alessandro Pianon designed this pendant lamp in 1956, it was made for many years. It was produced for several years. It is characteristic of Alessandro's design vocabulary: simple, geometric shapes and monochromatic colours. None of these pendant lamps are identical and all handmade. This lamp is an early production. Vistosi was created in 1945 by Guglielmo Vistosi in Murano, focused on lighting. After his untimely death, his sons Gino and Luciano joined their uncle Oreste in founding the company Vistosi. In 1956, Alessandro Pianon, a Venetian architect, joined the company. Together with the second generation Luciano and Gino Vistosi, they gave the company a spin with a focus on innovation and design. The company employs some very relevant designers such as Angelo Mangiarotti, Gae Aulenti. Peter Pelzel, Ettore Sottsass Jr., Adalberto Dal Lago. Vico Magistretti, Enrico Tronconi and so on. In 1989, Giancarlo Moretti, a businessman from Murano with a long experience in the glass sector at Vetrofond and Punto Luce, acquired the prestigious brand, giving birth to Vetreria Vistosi. The sole survivor of the original founders, Luciano, born February 24, 1930, devoted himself to research and glass sculpture until his death in Venice on May 14, 2010.
