Venini Spa

The Venini name first appeared in Murano as “Cappellin Venini & C.”, established in 1921 by Giacomo Cappellin, a Venetian antiquarian and Paolo Venini, a lawyer from Milan whose family had an ancient tradition of glass making.
Under the artistic direction of the painter Vittorio Zecchin, Cappellin Venini & C. set about establishing the unique stylistic identity that still distinguishes the company today. Shunning traditional design, the young company looked instead towards the artistic avant-garde, and recruited the island’s best glass makers.

Over the next few years, the company successfully presented its works in decorative art exhibitions and galleries in Italy and abroad. Then, in 1925, Paolo Venini and Giacomo Cappellin went their different ways.
This led to the formation of V.S.M. Venini & C. with the sculptor Napoleone Martinuzzi, an expert in artistic glass, as art director.
New ideas and production techniques were soon tested and introduced. Starting in 1932, Paolo Venini himself began to assume an ever greater role in the artistic direction of his company.
Venini signed innovative contracts with leading artists, architects and designers of the period, including Tomaso Buzzi, Carlo Scarpa, Lancia, Pulitzer and, after the war, Gio Ponti and Fulvio Bianconi.
To complement the company’s original artistic production, its now famous chandeliers appeared, often destined for important public and private projects.

In 1959, after the death of Paolo Venini, the direction of the Company goes to the architect Ludovico Diaz de Santillana. The collaboration with the protagonists of “art and design world”, initially unconnected to the art of glass, brings a high level of innovation and experimentation.
In 1985 Venini changed the ownership: Gardini and Ferruzzi families. The company starts over the collaboration with artists and architects more vigorously.
From January 1998, Venini S.p.A. was acquired by the Royal Scandinavia, group that already owns other brand such as Royal Copenhagen, Georg Jensen, Orrefors, Kosta Boda, Boda Nova.
In December 2001 Venini joins Italian Luxury Industries, an Italian company headed by the entrepreneurs Giancarlo and Gabriella Chimento, Giuliano and Guglielmo Tabacchi.
