Inspired by the Opéra Garnier, it stands out for its eclectic, decorative character, expressed in stylistic mixtures and remarkable compositional balance. The references to a certain Baroque splendour are tempered by more minimal, contemporary touches, generating a delicate, harmonious dichotomy. The design challenge was to bring out the artistry and heritage of the company, a repository of the art of glass for over seven centuries. The outcome of this creative effort is a timeless, elegant design, rich but not redundant, with a direct, incisive personality. The main feature chosen by Nigro for the collection is the rostrato. This complex technique of craftsmanship, patented by Barovier&Toso, was invented by Ercole Barovier in 1938 and consists of “freehand” shaping of Venetian Crystal to obtain a continuous series of multi-facetted prisms.
