Atelier OÏ x Venini, Stelle Filenti

The Swiss design studio Atelier Oï created the “Stelle Filenti” (“shooting stars”) hanging lamps for Venetian company Venini. Venini’s art director Roberto Gasparotto invited Atelier Oï to experiment with the most traditional Venetian artistic craft material, glass, combined with leather and Alcantara fabric. A net supports and envelops the top of the blown-glass diffuser.

Le studio de design suisse Atelier Oï a imaginé la série de suspensions “Stelle Filenti” (“étoiles filantes”) pour l’éditeur italien Venini. Le directeur artistique de la marque, Roberto Gasparotto, a invité les designers d’Atelier Oï à tenter diverses expériences avec le verre – matériau vénitien traditionnel par excellence. Un filet de cuir et d’Alcantara soutient et vient englober la partie supérieure du diffuseur de verre soufflé à la bouche.

“The concept of transformation”, explain the designers, “was at the heart of our inspiration for this project. Studies of the material and experimentation drove us to search for new forms, contrasts and appeal. The starting point was a small octagonal scrap of natural leather. With clever cutting based on the manual art of découpage, we turned it into a sort of garland that unfolds in the air and acquires mass as it reacts to the weight and light of the diffuser.”
