Since in inception in 1931, Veronese has been building up a treasure trove of spare parts of glass hand blown. Thousands of pieces that had been stored haphazardly on dusty shelves : exquisitely crafted cups, drops, rings and flowers had been patiently waiting for a Prince Charming to bring them to light.
Fascinated by this discovery, Veronese ceaselessly searched for the wizard who would give these marvels a second life in the spirit of today. Piet Hein Eek, a Dutch designer with a mastery of upcycling was a perfect fit for the project. The designer dreamed up a Meccano like principle of 40cm clear glass tubes, equipped with LED lighting. The tubes can be assembled to create a longer chandelier. Each segment carries a metal disc into which the fantastically diverse jewel -like spare parts can be slotted – an eclectic feast of styles and colours.
