New Murano CollectionMarch 16, 2017
The Murano Collection was inspired by a visit to the Venetian island of Murano, where master craftsmen have been producing glassware for centuries by floating layers of different coloured glass through one another to produce exquisite patterns.
The collection stemmed from Edward’s ongoing interest and expertise in laminating. It is made using our own in-house veneers whereby hundreds of thin strips of wood are joined together, resulting in ‘wavy’ sweeping lines and curves that engulf the furniture, bringing a soft, organic free-flowing surface to the angular forms.
Edward sees this process as a way ‘to manipulate the grain of the wood as an artist would manipulate paint with a brush’.
