Angelo Mangiarotti for Vistosi
A brilliant design created by the Italian architect Angelo Mangiarotti in 1967 and awarded the Compasso d'Oro at the Milan Triennale in 1969.
Angelo's philosophy was to find one form to unleash its ultimate potential and express artists' creativity.
His genius idea embodies simplicity as it consists of one recurring element that in its easy repetition creates various objects and shapes. With Vistosi, Angelo found the ideal partner for this revolutionary vision.
Handcrafted Murano glass hooks, out of a blown glass baguette, interlock suspended to each other to create this light fixture. This particular chandelier is rare on the market for the amethyst medallion incorporated at the core of each Murano glass cascading link, multiplying the light source and producing tinted reflections.
The handcrafting of every single piece gives an individual touch with the result of unique works of art.
Vistosi history counts more than 500 years of glassmaking, collaborating with famous artists such as Gae Aulenti, Ettore Sottsass...
Vistosi blown glass has reduced sodium, which makes the glass resistant yet crystal clear, even with the passing of time.
