In seven centuries of history, we have seen
fashions come and go.
Some were minimal, others more baroque,
but every one of them chased time
in a desperate search for the “new.”
Time in Venice, instead, goes by slowly.
There is no rush, no craze, just a great deal
of space and time to develop your craft.
So we took our time and in that time
we have learned that we would rather do
something unique and enlightening
that lasts forever instead of something new
that only fascinates you for one season.
It takes strength to bring glass out
from the fire and heat.
It takes patience to strive for nothing less
than the perfect shape.
And it takes heart, a lot of it, to grow
a legendary luxury lighting tradition
into the new world, working with innovators
and traditionalists alike.
But again, we can afford the luxury of time.
And perhaps, so can you.
