LUCIANO VISTOSI LIGHTS
Luciano Vistosi was originally born in Murano in 1931, spending most of his childhood and teenage years working in the family kiln, where he learnt techniques concerning the moods, colours, sounds and tastes of traditional glass craftsmen. His search for absolute designs, led him to put quality of materials first, closely followed by style. As an artist he had a strong belief that drawings were only the starting point of a design, eventually leading to the creation of his glass sculptures. From the sixties onwards he held a number of solo exhibitions and partook in various exhibitions from Venice to San Francisco, from Madrid and Cologne to Japan. Vistosi created these mushroom-like lights at the request of Artemide's director Ernesto Gismondi in 1978. The simple design was easy to manufacture, and over the years it has remained in production and become a classic. His family of lights including table and floor versions was produced for ten years.
