Description

Loni is a particularly elegant brandy glass.
Once again Giberto’s inspiration comes from his family, from his childhood memories of a glass he saw at the Palazzo Papadopoli, and which he has decided to reproduce now, using the rigà menà technique, and updated with a platinum rim.

Loni is also a homage to my father, Leonardo Arrivabene, who was ‘Loni’ to his friends.”

Loni is the perfect last-thing-at-night glass: a little conversation and a good drink.

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.”

Craftmanship

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.
