Objects of Desire: A roundup of stunning products made of glass.
Cordless Murano glass table lamp, part of the debut lighting collection from Green Wolf Studio, a collaboration with renowned Venetian lighting designer Paola Petrobelli.
Designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez in collaboration with Venini, Fantini celebrates Italy’s glassmaking heritage with the Venezia series of Murano glass faucet handles.
The Luce Orizzontale, a sculptural glass light fixture designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Flos, is inspired by a previous bespoke installation by the French designers at the Bourse de Commerce art museum in Paris. The pendant is modular—glass cylinders rest on a polished aluminum bar—and the Bouroullecs played with the reflection of light on the cast-glass elements.
Seemingly inspired by the work of American artist Donald Judd (both in name and form), the Donald table, designed by Philippe Starck for Glas Italia, is a minimalist’s dream. The base is made from a mirror-polished stainless-steel plate and topped with a rectangular slab of orange colored glass.
A producer of glass furniture since the 1980s, Tonelli has been collaborating with international designers for more than 30 years. The Opalina vanity, by Italian designer Cristina Celestino, is a fresh take on the classic dressing table.
