After a long restoration, on the occasion of Homo Faber In Città, “Vetreria Artistica Fornasier Luigi Sas”, the Glass Studio of Fabio Fornasier, reopens its doors to the public, offering the opportunity to visit the gallery, and see, in this exclusive location, some of the glass created by Master Fabio Fornasier. It will be possible to see the various stages of glass processing, starting with the composition of the glass, the furnace with its oven where the glass is blown, the assembly laboratory and finally the gallery.
Processing exquisite glass in the studio of Fabio FornasierFabio Fornasier was born in Venice in 1963. It was at the age of 16, in his father Luigi's furnace, that Fabio first had a go at making glass. In a short time he became captivated by this unbelievable material. In the intervening years, he has acquired more experience and honed his skills, he is now able to demonstrate his many talents in the creation of chandeliers. He has reinterpreted the traditional Venetian chandelier, creating "Aria e Fuoco". Structurally they are similar to the Venetian chandelier but are comprised of sinuous and elegant shapes and fuelled by oil. Using the same concept, he has also developed a collection of chandeliers with a traditional flavour but with a modern design: the highly acclaimed LU Murano collection.
