Modernist Mid-century-style piastra glass canopy light 
We think of this as a modern up-to-date style, but Cenedese, Reggiani and Mazzega were making chandeliers like this as far back as the 1960s, suspending pieces of glass from a central canopy.
The technique for making piastra glass dates back as far as the thirteenth century, and is very labour intensive, as the molten glass is formed into the required shape by hand, using iron tools, and then left to cool.
The method may be traditional but the design and style are pure 1970s mid-century modernist.
