Time is the first ingredient of the Barovier&Toso collections, the Murano glassworks with roots going back to 1295. The past, with its historic heritage and craft techniques that have been handed down through the centuries, and a time that looks ahead to the future made up of change and innovation in technology and aesthetics. This synthesis is also represented by the new collection of lamps named Padma, a word that means “lotus” in Sanskrit.
Inspired by the water plant of ancient origins and in particular its flower, the only one to contain the fruit within itself, Padma is completely handmade in Venetian crystal. And just as the lotus flower contains its fruit, so too the large glass ampoule made with a single blowing encompasses a precious ribbed object made by the master glassblowers. Fitted with a dimmable LED light source, it comes in multiple table and suspension versions, with diffusers of different forms, shaded in white and gray, and with refined colored internal elements.
