Murano Glass Chandelier Meets 3D Printing

Murano Glass Chandelier Meets 3D Printing  => When someone talks about Murano Glass or Venetian Chandeliers, they usually refer to glass chandeliers made in the island of Murano, Italy, made according to the 700 years of glass blowing tradition.

Architects Arturo Tedeschi, Michael Pryor, and Pavlina Vardoulaki have collaborated to produce a unique lighting design dubbed ‘horizon’, a suspension lamp that encapsulates a freeform 3D printed shape within a handmade glass shelter manufactured in Murano.

The project emerges from today’s reality, where people seem to experience a disaffection with objects, making them temporary tools without any story, just waiting for the next hardware update. As a result, many companies are re-thinking their production approach, aiming to meet a complex demand which evolves with society. Following this idea, the designers have decided to produce a hybrid design, between evolution and tradition, where contemporary technology meets the skillful human touch.

The main idea is to create two separately constructed sinuous surfaces that co-exist. As far as the outer lamp shell is concerned, the glass master shapes the glass by hand, relying on CNC-milled molds. After the glass reaches the needed shape, it stays one day on a tempra-oven where it cools-down slowly to prevent any cracks.

Once the glass is cold, it is ground and polished to remove any excess material, and then, it is finally pierced with diamond tips. This process allows seriality and at the same time, generates differentiation and desired imperfection. On the other hand, the light-diffusing core is 3D printed in order to achieve a formal complexity not possible with traditional production systems.

Venetian chandeliers are completely made by hand. Every glass ornament has to be masterly executed, as mounting the chandelier is asks for a precision that comes down to the millimeter.
