"Venturi Pear Blue" Unique Murano Glass and Metal Vase Designed by Lara Bohinc

About

"Venturi Pear Blue", designed by Lara Bohinc, is part of the Venturi collection and is available in ruby red, rose, sapphire and white filigrana glass, with the metal frames glazed in bronze. The process of handblown glass forms unique, organic pieces and Bohinc oversaw their production at Murano's artisanal workshop led by Massimiliano Schiavo Art team. Each vase is handmade in Venice from Murano glass in a small artisanal workshop. All Venturi vases are unique pieces. DIMENSIONS: Ø 8.27", Base 3.15" x 3.15", H. 10.43", Opening 1.38" Lara Bohinc's collection is inspired by her encounters with Venice. Metal frames hold Bohinc’s Murano glass vases and are reminiscent of the foundations upon which Venice was built: the metal is strong, rigid and geometric; the glass likes water, being fluid, organic and irrepressible. This playful twist on the foundations of Venice is the inspiration behind this collection. A marriage of opposites is also found in the Hotel Bauer’s modern and neogothic architecture, in seamless union in spite of their different architectural movements. And like Venice, the Bauer is hosting to a set of dichotomies: the embodiment of contradictions and geometry with the organic, a theme that Bohinc expresses in this collection. Venice is synonymous with water and glass is the perfect material to represent this, also being one of the city’s most celebrated materials and traditions. The voluptuous forms in this body of work are blown from within a metal cage and this style also features in traditional Venetian sculptural glass. LARA BOHINC, born in Slovenia, has been devoted to fashion, jewellery, design and architecture from an early age. She moved to London in 1996 to study jewelry and metalwork at the Royal College of Art. The following year, she debuted her collection at London Fashion Week, won the New Generation Design Award and began a series of collaborations with fashion big-timers such as Gucci, Costume National, Lanvin, Exte, Guy Laroche, Marcus Lupfer and Julien McDonald, and is a freelance consultant for Cartier International. Lara Bohinc was nominated for Accessory Designer of the Year Award by the British Fashion Council in 2008, and awarded Jewellery Designer of the Year by Elle Style Awards in February 2009. While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has drawn on her familiarity with Industrial techniques and materials to revitalize her pieces of design. Harnessing such technological processes as photo-etching, laser-cutting and computer design, she has fused modernity of style with classical design to achieve a contemporary yet timeless elegance.
