On occasion of Milano Home, the Consorzio Promovetro di Murano (Murano Glass promotion Consortium) has the pleasure to present “Murano: the glass island”, a journey to discover the place where the most famous glass in the world is moulded: Murano glass.
The installation is intended to represent a floating island on which to display the works created by various Murano glass masters; lights, videos and projections will enhance the quality of the exhibits while creating an immersive space, able to captivate the visitor.
The works on display will be especially created for the exhibition and will represent a synthesis of the extreme variety of techniques and products that the island of Murano has to offer the consumer, an assortment of “glass” with a traditional or contemporary flair, obtained in kilns, studios and artisan workshops.
