Fulvio Bianconi and Massimo Vignelli
Venini Italy, 1953 4¼ w x 4 d x 11¼ h in (11 x 10 x 29 cm)
In 1946 the young artist, designer and caricaturist Fulvio Bianconi began a relationship with Venini that would last throughout the 1950s. His bold modernist designs such as Pezzato , Macchie and Fasce Orizzontali have become famous worldwide and are rightly considered emblems of both post-war Murano glass and 20th century design.
