At the end of October, multi-coloured birds made of Murano glass can be found in the windows of the historic brand, Larusmiani (Via Montenapoleone, Milan). They were a result of the collaboration between Matteo Thun’s Atelier, the Architect Fasciana (Creative Director of the brand) and the glass-blowing masters of Murano. Larusmiani’s craftsmanship and the little Murano glass birds demonstrate joint excellence, and handmade in Italy. Larusmiani marries quality materials with tailor-made mastery, and welcomes this delicate project to its windows. Matteo Thun is an architect and designer, and has worked on over 50 hotels around the world, as well as on the production of lamps and vases in Tuscany and Murano. He believes in the value of artisan practices, reinforcing the bond between fashion and design.

The theme of the collection was influenced Thun’s ornithologist father, inspiring him to create a collection of glass birds that represent not only physical, but intuitive levity, even concerning food.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
