Mixed, in a mystical and solemn way,
The powerful chords of their rich music
With the colors of the sunset reflected in my eyes.There did I live…”

The largest and most successful of the Murano glass furnaces, still in business in Murano, Venini was established in 1925 by Paolo Venini. Venini embraced Modernism trends in art and architecture with their new designs in elegant shapes and colors. Venini also was known for their use of designers to bring new ideas to Murano. Their designers included Napoleon Martinuzzi, Tommaso Buzzi, Giò Ponti, Tyra Lundgren, and Fulvio Bianconi. Venini still produces a beautiful line of art vases, some are classic designs, and some new designs introduced every year.
