In the heart of Milan's fashion district, the Venini Boutique inaugurates the 2023 Design Week with an installation curated by Studio Marco Piva. The common thread is magenta, the symbolic color of 2023

At number 10 in via Montenapoleone, a recess leads to a small gallery which is a more private and welcoming environment than the dense passage along the sidewalk. This is where the Venini boutique opens, a location symbol and icon of glass art strong>, set up for the occasion by Studio MarcoPiva, the company's new art director.

Exhibition space and meeting place for developing custom-made projects for the Contract and Residential sector, the Boutique exhibits, alongside the historic pieces by Venini, the new contemporary objects.

In fact, the new designer collections by Marco Piva and Peter Marino are on display as a preview, testifying to the mastery of Artglass and Artlight muranese.

At the centre, the collection of Bloom Collection vases and centerpieces by StudioMarco Piva, deriving from a new fusion of selected glass recovered from previous processes, worked exclusively by hand without molds.

A product that is both a design challenge and care for the environment.

The Alieno and Ballerina lamps were also designed by Studio Marco Piva. The first is an evocative object with an ironic “extraterrestrial” silhouette: a table lamp, with a rechargeable battery.

The second is a new collection of suspension lamps, appliques, vases and centerpieces in Venini colored glass, made with different finishes.

The new Fagiolo table lamp by Peter Marino is displayed in the reception area, a light sculpture in blown glass, with soft shapes, made entirely by hand . The base is in metal, brushed gold finish.

The leitmotif of the set-up is the new color Magenta by Venini, an interpretation of the symbolic color of 2023 that dresses some icons of the brand such as Fazzoletto, a tribute to the historical heritage of the furnace designed by Fulvio Bianconi and Paolo Venini in 1948.
