Mouth-Blown Venetian Glass Lighting
Melograno Blu set up their studios 5 years ago in Venice, and have been creating a storm of attention the world over for their delicate mouth-blown glass chandeliers. They have launched themselves from obscurity with success at the Paris Maison et Object Fair last year, and can now be found in some of the hippest hotels from Hollywood to the Cote D'Azur, and in some lucky private residences worldwide. The ethereal qualities of these glittering blown glasses cannot be described; they must be experienced. They literally define the space -- you could design an entire residential design scheme around them.
Each piece is first hand crafted by Murano artisans (thus creating one-offs) then, they are accessorized with silk tassels, natural beaded shells, sculpted egg pendants, or glass coral branches to create that sultry environment evocative of old Oriental-style lighting in the 1920's Paris and Berlin nightclubs. There are several glass forms and sizes to choose from, creating numerous possible combinations, which are then customized to your needs. Prices can be inquired upon by requesting information through the studio's website, but expect to pay upwards of 6,000 Euros for your divine chandelier creation.
