Veronese Presents at Decorex International its 2016 Novelties
Join Veronese at Decorex International 2016 this September 18 – 21 and discover our 2016 Novelties. For the first time, we will introduce to the European market our latest contemporary designs by four prominent architects/designers: Dan Yeffet, Reda Amalou, Tristan Auer and Patrick Naggar. Together with these designers, Veronese pushes the bounds ever further away from the familiar classical Murano shapes of bygone years with this year’s Novelties. These four new collections – CELL, HIGHLIGHT, ICE and YSA – will be exhibited along with Veronese’s iconic collections.
CELL by Patrick Naggar was inspired by the designer’s most recent collection for Veronese, the Chromosome. Enthralled with the Chromosome’s elegant curves encasing an innovative lighting system, the designer dug deeper and designed a complimentary new collection composed of a suspension and two wall lamps.
The new collection is an abstract interpretation of its predecessor. The encased light source of the CELL suspension, while different from the Chromosome, is once again innovative in its own way. For the first time the designer places LED technology at the center of his design by an inner tube of Murano glass with gold leaf to create a rare lighting experience with today’s LED technology.
HIGHLIGHT by Dan Yeffet marks the first collaboration between Veronese and designer Dan Yeffet. HIGHLIGHT is a collection of contemporary floor and table lamps that gracefully combine Murano glass and marble. With its three different heights (45 cm, 70 cm and 110 cm) the collection shows striking dimensions. Each design, including the one towering at 110 cm in height, is made of one single piece of blown Murano glass.
ICE by Reda Amalou originates from the fascination with designing an iconic piece of Murano glass that can evolve into various compositions, welcoming a perpetual creative process. With this objective in mind, the designer created a textured rectangular sheet of hand-laid Murano glass with a geometric, hand-pressed pattern that catches the light and gently diffuses it.
The flexibility of this design further emphasizes the ever-changing nature of contemporary design. To inaugurate this novel creative journey, Veronese will present at Decorex London 2016 a new wall lamp and suspension designed by Reda Amalou.
The YSA design story begins with an obscure inspiration – the simplicity of draped sheets of paper. With this image in mind, the designer Tristan Auer turned to Veronese to research Murano glass techniques to transform the familiar into a striking design. Eventually, the designer modeled the everyday shape of paper sheets into an intricate lighting design. From a distance you will see pure angular lines, but you will be quickly drawn in closer to discover YSA’s mysterious textures and details.
The designer drew from several traditional Murano glass techniques to create this Murano glass wall lamp. The top smaller layer of Murano glass is of streaked frosted colored crystal glass. The second layer is smoked colored Murano glass with a stripe pattern applied under heat. The third layer is Murano glass with an application of mirror. Like a well-tailored hem, a soft crystal border delicately frames each layer.
