Modernist style canopy ceiling light with clear and black Murano piastra glass 
A gorgeous canopy ceiling light from our own mid-century collection, made from clear and black Murano piastra glass and stainless steel.
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.
Measuring well over a metre in height, it's much larger than it appears to be in the photographs. As it comes from our own collection, we can have it made for you in custom sizes. Please get in touch with us if you would like to know more
