WonderGlass fuses traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design, developing bespoke Murano glass lighting and installations for architecture, art and fashion.
Maurizio and Christian Mussati founded WonderGlass in 2013, developing and manufacturing beautifully crafted, glass lighting and bespoke installations and chandeliers. WonderGlass draws on the tradition of Murano glass making, and partners with global designers such as Nao Tamura, Marcel Wanders, Zaha Hadid, Hideki Yoshimoto, Dan Yeffet, John Pawson, Nendo, Jaime Hayón and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
Operating from their Headquarters and Gallery space in London and working with their specialist teams in Venice, WonderGlass offers an array of solutions using glass-blowing and cast-glass techniques. Its ability to combine innovative and original design with a traditional handmade quality makes WonderGlass unique and world leaders in glass design.
WonderGlass’ extraordinary craftspeople and contemporary designers have revolutionised the practice of blown glass, which has been produced in Murano since the thirteenth century. This is showcased in Nao Tamura’s Flow[T], John Pawson’s Sleeve and Jamie Hayón’s Masquerade, which demonstrate the skill and diversity of the designers and craftspeople.
Cast glass is an ancient form of craftsmanship and possibly the oldest method for working glass. Based in their Venetian workshops, WonderGlass’ craftspeople used specially made cast-iron moulds, often of their own manufacture. Melt by Nendo, Horah by Raw Edges and Alcova by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are examples of cast-glass projects that push the boundaries of the material and method.
WonderGlass is available exclusively from Living Edge in Australia. Founders Maurizio and Christian Mussati will be visiting Living Edge showrooms around Australia, including a press event in Living Edge’s headquarters and flagship store in Sydney.
