Description

The Laguna jug takes its shape after the typical hexagonal glass crafted in Murano, blown with an incredibly thin glass, which Giberto wanted in a dark intense green, such as that of Venice’s lagoon in the winter. As Johann Wolfgang Goethe wrote once visiting Venice, the lagoon is a “an ancient masterpiece made by nature”.

The pitcher is finished by a hand blown handle hot sealed to the pitcher, which facilitates the grip and is embellished by a red glass rim. The contrast between hot and cold colors make this an object of modern elegance that is able to adapt to any occasion of the day: it can contain water, iced tea, juices, or why not… spritz and pimm’s in the evening.

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.
