60 Years of Italian Hands Making Glass
Fabio Luciani gives a sneak preview to the September 2014 collection from IVV, one of the leading figures in the hand blown and handmade glass production. This decorative selection for the house attains the lightness and vigor infused by the passion of the craftsman. Fine details and distinctive marks in the crystal glass form the unique character seen in their crafts. Inspired by the exotic texture of African wood, this collection unites glass with oak to create delicate table lamps, vases, clocks and fashionable boxes. These home décor items come in chrome, mauve, champagne and transparent color options, while the Cased glass vase is available in red, white and violet.
Master glassworkers formed IVV, Industria Vetraria Valdarnese, in 1952. With roots in Tuscany, their hand blown and handmade glass products combine artisan skills and a rigorous flair. Each product portrays researched materials, design, traditional artisan techniques and highly monitored processes. The passion, innovation and sound values configured within IVV’s remarkable objects tell a story, a story of style, of magic, of originality and of quality.
