The factor that makes this formula unique, still used today through progressive refinements, is the total absence of lead and arsenic. This is what makes our Venetian Crystal different from any other crystal on the market, enabling the master artisans to carry out the entire production process in complete safety, achieving exceptional results. The Venetian Crystal is a unique, sustainable and safe material, ideal to give form to works of great artistic value: the creations of Barovier&Toso.

Barovier&Toso Murano blown glass chandeliers

Barovier&Toso Murano blown glass chandeliers are true works of art. From the most traditional to contemporary styles, blown glass chandeliers can enhance any room, giving it a touch of elegance and sophistication. Majestic and imposing, model 4607 is the classic of classics. The Baroque style is lightened by the transparency of crystal and delicate colored glass paste flowers. Smaller dimensions, but same aesthetic impact for the Agadir model, reissued from historical designs from the Barovier&Toso archive. Agadir is available in four models, with 8, 12, 16 or 18 lights, declined in two different heights. It bears the signature of Marcel Wanders the Adonis model, which combines Dutch floral tradition with Murano savoir faire. Butterflies and tulip buds animate the arms unfolded in a halo that converges downward into a delicate bowl. The chandelier is modular and customizable as desired. Franco Raggi has measured himself against the centuries-old Murano glassmaking tradition by breaking down the classic chandelier and placing the arms horizontally, in the Domo Amsterdam chandelier.
The range of pendant lamps astonishes with variety and eclecticism, starting with Alessandro Piva's Manhattan model, in which blown glass bubbles of various colors descend from the ceiling, framed in metal frames with a contemporary flavor. It is echoed by the compact Clepsydra model, inspired by original designs from the Barovier&Toso archive dating back to the 1960s. The hourglass-shaped elements are made with the ancient Rigadin technique, which returns a glass decorated with a series of thin ribs. AI Design, on the other hand, is responsible for the Angel lamp, a sublime poem of crystal feathers. There is also a rich choice of ceiling lights, some of which accompany the pendant lamps, in the Clepsydra, Empire, and New Felci collections. Classic and elegant, the Excelsior ceiling lamp is inspired by the designs made by the brand in the first half of the 20th century for cruise ships and luxury hotels.

Barovier&Toso, table and floor lamps

The Barovier&Toso catalog also offers solutions for soft lighting, with collections of table lamps and floor lamps. Standing out as sculptures with a contemporary mood are the lamps in the Perseus collection, designed by Marcel Wanders, which reinterprets the classics by disarticulating their elements. Inspired by the original design signed by Angelo Barovier in 1966, the Samurai floor lamp features a solid Venetian crystal pedestal surmounted by a lampshade with a classic feel. Also available in a table version, Samurai comes in 10 crystal colors and 10 finishes from the Bespoke collection. French designer Philippe Nigro signs the Opéra collection, inspired by the sumptuous lamps of the Paris Opéra. The pedestal consists of a cylinder made of rosted crystal, a decorative element typical of Art Deco, featuring sharp details. The table lamp fits into a distinctive oval metal frame, declined in brushed gold, copper and black nickel finishes. The rostrato technique also inspired designer Giorgia Brusemini, who in the My Marilyn collection inserts this element in the base of the lamps, while a cylindrical diffuser in white opaline glass creates a pleasant contrast with its essential lines. Delicate transparencies characterize the blown crystal base of the Eva lamp, made by superimposing three ogive-shaped elements. The cone-shaped fabric diffuser is declined in white, black and black with gold interior. ... More ... less
