Exit

After a brief absence, Venini reopens in Milan in Via Bigli 6, offering magic coloured glass. Some of the iconic pieces of this historic Venetian brand, signed by famous names in the design field, are spread throughout the two-storey space. At the entrance towers La grande pianta fiorita (The great flowering plant), a glass sculpture created in 1931 by the master Napoleone Martinuzzi, which was reissued in five copies in 2013 for the exhibition organised by Le Stanze del Vetro, on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. This work consists of a glass vase bearing four flowering branches in bloom, in clear and opaque green crystal, illuminated by golden leaves. The upper part of each branch is decorated with a rich composition of exceptionally crafted bouquets. There are also contemporary pieces, for example, the ironic anthropomorphic “Falstaff”vase, created by Alessandro Mendini, Mario Bellini’s bowls polychrome bowls with cotizzi, entitled “Chimera”, and pop-inspired vases by Flo Perkins.

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.
