DESIGNER Carlo Nason (1935)
DIMENSIONS D. 36,5 x H. 40 /cm
The Italian designer Carlo Nason was born in 1935 in Murano, into a family of expert glassmakers. From an early age, the young Nason was trained in the art of glassblowing, learning both the properties of the material and the craft techniques used in glass moulding and decoration. Driven by his passion for design, he decided in the 1960s to distance himself from the family business. Nason shifted his focus to the design of glass lighting in a modernist language. Nason intended to produce his first models himself in small series, but soon his spirit of experimentation and innovation attracted the attention of Murano glass manufacturer A. V. Mazzega, and the company invited him to collaborate on new collections. The partnership lasted from 1965 until the 1980s and resulted in a range of iconic lighting designs still in demand today.
