Vaso is a traditional Murano tumbler: clean lines, slightly conical, hand-blown, in nine different colours – aquamarine, amber, dark and light amethyst, crystal, black, green, red and smoky grey – all the tones the Venetian lagoon has to offer.

Nowhere as much in Vaso can you imagine the exact moment the master glassblower detaches the blowpipe from the object which then magically becomes an autonomous piece, a vessel.

Vaso is perfect for every occasion and every table, especially the version created by Giberto with the platinum lip. “I’ve seen so many Venetian vases with gold rims and I wanted to try a variation on the theme, with platinum – a noble and adaptable metal, symbolic of tenacity and achieving one’s ambitions.”

The Designer

The life of Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga is viscerally linked to Venice. His childhood memories, the most beautiful, are those that have taken place in the rooms of Palazzo Papadopoli, between frescoes of Tiepolo and family affection. “In my earliest memories Venice had other colours. It was more obscure, dramatic, decayed and deeply romantic – simply beautiful. There wasn’t the same light like there is today – more dazzling perhaps, but less poetic.”


Each piece derives from a watercolour sketch made by Giberto on tracing paper: “When I see something that inspires me, or an object that I like, I sketch and rework it – then move on to the realization of it.”

The glass, the main material in the collections, is worked exclusively in Murano. Each glass, each specific object, is blown by master glassmakers in the Venetian furnaces.

Giberto takes his watercolours to discuss with them and refine the project, check its feasibility, and to make eventual changes.
