Phoenix


Phoenix for Linteloo   / 2020

In the 1400s, Angelo Barovier, Murano’s greatest glassmaker ever, developed the art of calcedonia: adding oxides to glass for a marbled effect, resembling semiprecious chalcedony. With changing fashions, this intricate technique almost got lost, until it was revived in de mid- 1800s. Together with a family of Italian artisans, Visser & Meijwaard have opted for pared back, ton-sur-ton veining in their ‘Phoenix’ lamp, complementing its elegant, clean lines, reminiscent of the Art Deco period. The individual, mouth-blown elements come together like beads on a necklace.

Material: Glass, brass
