An icon of the Italian design, Luca Nichetto has created a range of glass lights for Swedish brand Svenskt Tenn, highly inspired by Josef Frank‘s prints and even using one in this collection’s exhibition.
Named Fusa, this collection combines a few candle holders, floor and table lamps, that enhance the art of Venetian glassblowing. This colorful art lamp collection counts with the most jewel-like colors, and each piece is set on a round brass base, which also acts as a dimmer for the owner to adjust the strength of the glow.
The tones and the swirly design in the Murano glass are Luca Nichetto‘s “own version” of the Terrazzo textile pattern by Josef Frank, one of 160 prints by the honorable Austrian architect in the Svenkst Tenn archive. Frank’s prints are still a big element used in the design brand‘s collections.

In Murano, some pieces of glass are thrown away and never thought of for recycling. With the so of reutilizing this material, Luca Nichetto gathered these pieces and melted them together so the colors could blend and create the beautiful patterns seen on the lamps. It’s really a form of glass art, I Lobo You is completely mesmerized by it!
Wanting to create the full experience, Luca Nichetto also designed a carpet for the floor. He wanted to create a connection between the carpets and the colorful lamps, a connection that led people to understand that the carpet was inspired by the lamps and that the lamps were inspired by the carpets.
