In celebration of Paris’s esteemed architect-designer of the 20th century, Andre Arbus, and his prolific relationship with Veronese – the leading French luxury Murano glass design house since 1931 – two historical models originally designed by Arbus – The CONCORDE sconce and the JETS d’EAU chandelier – will be presented by Veronese at Decorex International 2014.
A jewel of the 20th century decorative arts era, JETS d’EAU chandelier (H 150 cm x D 140 cm), was originally designed in 1949 by Andre Arbus for the living room of his mansion on rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, Paris. Inspired by the Obelisk, the majestic CONCORDE sconce (H 57 cm x L 18 cm), was designed for the dining hall of a British luxury cruise liner in 1952. This design is particularly unique not only for its shape, but for it’s gold hues created by mixing gold leaf crystal with Murano glass. For the first time, Veronese will present at Decorex International 2014, its new exclusive silver leaf finish for the Concorde.
The Arbus-Veronese collaboration began in the 1930’s and continues till today. As a former leader in the design world and with his name on many industry awards, Arbus could not remain indifferent to the master glassblowers of Murano therefore, opening the door to his close relationship with Veronese. He designed chandeliers, wall lights and table chandeliers in collaboration with Veronese, the most stunning example of this collaboration being undoubtedly the JETS D’EAU chandelier. As in the 1930’s, Veronese continues to maintain the integrity of Arbus’s designs.
