In my most recent post about Vistosi, I said that the firm “…is very important to you as specifiers, because theirs is the best, the most useful selection of contemporary glass lighting.”
In this post, I’ll draw your attention to three of them.
Starnet (at the top of this post) has the lightness and airiness of Vistosi’s Giogali. It also can be arranged in various different forms. Other shapes they are suggesting include the Up Down version above, but with the bottom section hanging down, rather than pulled up through the centre, Cilindro:
Futura comes in three colourways and a good size (H44cm Ø23cm):
Oto is a very clever design. Of course, there are many variations on the theme of multiple glass balls. In this case, besides the fact that they are very well done, with balls in a variety of sizes and finishes, Vistosi have thought about the cable problem. Yes! Normally, if they are lit from within, forty balls = forty thick electric cables. What Vistosi are doing is putting some unlit balls on the powered cables, so that there are fewer cables overall.
