Carlo Nason, Curvati Murano Chandelier, Clear Crystal Triedri, Four Available

$4,306.85

About

Two iconic midcentury chandeliers from Murano, designed by Carlo Nason. Designed in the 1960s. The use of the triedri elements had been limited to straight fencing around the bulbs, often with different lengths, with a cascade effect. Carlo had the innovative idea of making four sections of curved rods with different diameters, creating a new perspective for this element. A Classic midcentury chandelier that suits every home, from the Classic to the contemporary. Simple and beautiful. Hardware can be easily modified for flush mount attachment. There are 20 clear Murano curved triedri hanging from chrome hardware. Identifications, references: Quality of glass triedri identifies the piece as made in Murano. There is a common wide attribution of these chandeliers to Venini. Evaluation assessment: By complexity of manufacturing and quality of both hardware and glass.

About the Designer

Carlo Nason

A mid-century modern reference for today’s Murano glassmakers, Carlo Nason influenced the current tradition of glassmaking on an island renowned for it for hundreds of years. Celebrated for their exceptional designs, Nason’s lighting fixtures are sought after by collectors worldwide.

Learning to design and craft pieces from the family vetreria — rather than partaking in any formal training — Nason was working with the maestros at his family’s company furnace, V. Nason & C., attached to their family home by the time he was 11 years old. Although his roots are in Murano glassmaking, he took inspiration from the clean lines and natural colors of the Japanese metal vases he had seen in his youth at Milanese fairs.

Wanting to produce modern glass lamps, Nason worked with his family friend Gianni Mazzega of Mazzega Murano. The 1970s and 1980s were productive and creative years for Nason as the sole and independent designer at Mazzega Murano. His prolific career has also seen him design for other lighting manufacturers like I TRE, Murano Due and Kalmar.

After a mere four years as a glassmaker, Carlo Nason had his creations displayed at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. The credit for the artisan’s pieces that were included in “Glass 1959” went to his family’s company, but the designs were all authored by Carlo.

Stepping away from the traditional, vibrant Murano stylings, Nason kept true to his inspiration, working with modern and simple forms that are relatively free of color. Nason told Palainco in a rare 2019 interview that his emotions inspired the shapes. And his legacy includes fixtures that are irreplicable and unreproducible, too — Nason made lighting pieces with multiple layers of glass that would be too costly or difficult to recreate today, and some designs were made with processes and materials now unavailable or banned in the glassmaking world.
