Ghirò Studio

Italian

The founders of Ghirò Studio, Michele and Domenico Francesco Ghirò, draw their creative inspiration from flora and fauna, resulting in pieces as imaginative as they are refined. This father and son team is always looking for new forms and materials to use in their meticulously produced pieces. Each object begins as blocks of crystal and glass in intense colors, especially the shades of blue found in Mediterranean waters, which are carefully sculpted into ripples, waves, globules and other biomorphic forms.

Michele Ghirò was born in 1957 in Bari, Italy. He developed an early fascination with glass as an artistic medium. In his 20s, he moved to Milan, where he had a succession of jobs working with the glass, honing his artistic abilities and experimenting with its properties.

In 1996, he was hired by the renowned glass designer Giorgio Berlini and became owner of the company when Berlini retired. Often called the “King of Glass,” Ghirò decided to create an academy dedicated to his favorite medium in 2004, preserving ancient glass-making techniques through the teaching of apprentices. 

Domenico Francesco Ghirò was born in Milan in 1992 and showed the same artistic talent and fascination with glass as his father. As a teen, he worked in his father’s glass workshop, later attending a commercial art school, where he also learned computer graphics and design. His early pieces reflect his fascination with the art of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Later, he discovered the works of Max Ingrand, Gio Ponti and the lighting company Fontana Arte, which resulted in redirecting his creative focus toward modernist designs. 

In 2014, Michele and Domenico decided to launch a joint business venture,  moved to a more prominent location and named their workshop Ghiró Studio. Their first collaborative project was a collection of wall mirrors, which garnered immediate praise. Ghirò Studio’s works are prominently displayed in contemporary art galleries and stylish homes across North America, Europe and the Middle East.
