SILVIA FINIELS

AVENTURINA DESIGN


 

Great Designers and Masters, searching for new shapes, materials and colours, have been the hallmarks of the unmatched quality of Murano art of 1940 to 1980: the Golden Age of glass.

Silvia Finiels, the Designer and creator of these lamps, has rediscovered exceptional and refined Murano glasses that she reworked and transformed into these stunning creations.

Each lamp is unique and respects the style, consistency and personality of artists like Vistosi, Sottsass, Memphis, Peter Shire, Ferro, Seguso, Cenedese, Barbini... where beauty and tradition merge in a strong visual impact and a new unmistakable style, modern yet powerful.

The collection by Silvia Finiels can be seen in her showroom, in Venice's fabulous Sestiere San Polo, and in her Murano studio, where she works and creates new compositions with authentic antique pieces or elements produced today by the most famous Murano Masters.

Her creations uphold the same high quality and beauty that have made Murano famous, and her lamps are now in the most illustrious homes and collections around the world.
