Vistosi traces its roots back to 16th Century Venetian glass making, but the lighting company is far from a dinosaur. They’ve continued to improve and update their process to stay cutting-edge while still honoring the tradition of craftsmanship of mouthblown glass lighting. The result: lighting designs that are at once modern and well-made.

We had the pleasure of talking to Vistosi about their heritage, their new initiatives and what to expect from the historically cutting-edge brand for the next few centuries to come (or at least the next year).

Vistosi has such a rich history, that stretches back to the 1500s on the legendary Venetian glass-blowing island of Murano, and still plays an important role in lighting design to this day. What innovations have led to such a long-lasting company?
The company’s history has stayed true to two assumptions: it has remained a family operation and has continued the tradition of the Murano glass crafting, passing it down through generations. The secret blend of Vistosi’s glass has been always improved through the centuries. Probably the most innovative one in the recent history is the unique blend developed by Vistosi for its crystal glass to make it as clear, pure and shinning as “iced water”.

Vistosi’s Master glassblowers are always up to the challenge of manufacturing new designs from the endlessly creative international designers that collaborates with the brand.

After the mouth blowing process our artisans rigorously, take care of the process of the “finishes”: drilling, grinding and polishing are very precise and accurate. All carried out under the knowledge that any little mistake could waste the entire job.

Since 2007 Vistosi built up its own production department to manufacture all the metal structures of its lamps. Manufacturing 100% in-house allows us to maintain a very high standard quality of the full production process: from sand and metal to complete certified lighting fixtures.

Vistosi has won several awards and patents. Giogali hook has been protected with a patent in 1967. In 2010 both Giogali and Giogali 3D have been registered as a “Tridimensional Trademark” or emblem of the Company by the European Community. In the same year the U.S. Trademark Office issued the patent certificate for Giogali has a “Symbol” of Vistosi. Both registrations in Europe and U.S.A. were issued for the first time ever in lighting.

So you still employ traditional methods for making your lighting fixtures?
The research is the core of Vistosi’s innovation. There are hundreds of years of knowledge inside the Vistosi glass factory. Just in the last 50 years of personal experience of the Moretti family, from Giancarlo to his son Matteo, the actual C.E.O. of Vistosi, they have all been involved in the glass production process: from chemical blending to fusion process, from mould manufacturing to mouth blowing techniques, from finishing of the glass to its surface treatment, from design to industrial projecting, the full team of more than 100 people involved in the company share this special passion.

What new methods have you introduced?
The focus of Vistosi has always been on innovation to propose to clients original and unique design lamps. The new collections are an example of Vistosi’s team skills: from design research to manual crafting, from engineering to assembling, everything is carefully supervised and made by expert personnel.

Like ‘Medea’ a collection of laps where a shaded milky half-tone glass is perfectly emphasized into 3 different icon shapes, together with a powerful integrated LED module and assembled with any visible connection, one of the missing of Vistosi, since Vistosi consider that avoiding shadows is as important has creating a beautiful light effect.
Or like ‘Phoenix’: a magic lamp were the blown glass seems to fly in between two metal rings, crowned all around, up and bottom by a dimmerable LED light surce.
Than the crafting precision of “Plot” collection to realize 3 pairs holes on a large glass blown to allow the passing through of metal rods to gently hold a pure sphere of white satin blown glass, lighted by a LED module like its alive heart.

The horizontal membrane of Oro collection is the result of a long and challenging crafting process by which this lamp reaches its final shape: the glass needs to be blown and repeatedly flattened and revolved to create inside its sphere shade an horizontal glass membrane that Vistosi’s decided to emphasize with several glass tones.

‘Stone’ collection is characterized by almost sculptured volumes, where the lightness of blown glass is opposed to the solidity of linear geometries. In this counterpoint, between the use of a material naturally tending to round shapes, the mouth blown glass, and a rigorous design requiring edges and orthogonal lines, the balance of a bright, original composition is expressed.
‘Riflesso’ collection, a pure glass blown, with a special hidden LED light source which creates a light effect similar to traditional incandescent bulb.

Another example is the ‘Futura’ collection that in few years became a masterpiece of Vistosi. It consist in a single blown glass with a unique handcraft process to make it in transparent colour at the upper part and and diffuser colour finish at the bottom part.
Vistosi approached the challenge of the new millennium the challenge for a glass-design lighting manufacturer: innovation, originality and on the top all the energy saving of the new LEDs converting almost all the collections to LED versions and proposing new design were the perfect fusion between glass art and LED technology is the best expression of the unending research of the company.

Do you have a favorite design or design process story?
Sure: Giogali collection designed by Angelo Mangiarotti in 1967 patented by Vistosi in the same year and than officially recognized by USA and the European Community has an emblem of the company, for the first time ever in lighting.

Furthermore, 5 out of 10 Vistosi best sellers were designed in the last 3 years, so collections like Puppet, Futura, Jube, Oto, Riflesso reached the stage together with icons like Diadema, Ecos, Alega, Lepanto, Rina, Poc and several others and when a product becomes a best seller it also becomes one of our favorites.

Any new releases you’d like to tell us about?
We are working on several new collections. We will present two of them at Light&Building fair in Frankfurt in March. For the second part of the year we are also going to finalize collections projected in collaboration with new and very famous designer.

Sounds intriguing, we look forward to seeing more. Considering the company is nearly 500 years old, any final thoughts on what we can expect from Vistosi in the next few centuries?

The Vistosi mission is to create timeless and innovative design products able to give a unique emotion inside the space they will be installed, wherever that may be. And whenever that may be.
