Lanterne Marine by Barber and Jay Osgerby for Venini
Italian glassmakers Venini launched a collection of hand-blown vases by London designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby in Milan last month. Aluminium frames are attached to the vases by a ring where the upper glass component (intended to hold flower stems in place) is inserted into the lower one. These frames were inspired by vernacular lanterns seen hanging from boats in the Venetian Lagoon when the designers travelled from the mainland to Venini’s workshops on the island of Murano.
