Description

Isabelle borrows the classic chunky cylindrical shape of the Murano goto, like the one you can see in Pietro Longhi’s Lady at her Toilette although there it is gilt-rimmed, whereas Giberto’s version has a platinum lip and is further embellished with a hematite droplet applied to the glass.

Isabelle, which is a substantial piece in both its variants, is thus a classic beaker, reinterpreted and finely decorated with a modern twist, making it an ideal object for any occasion.

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.
