You might enjoy some drinks at the Lagune style luxury counter in Baku, or dine while admiring the mirrored boiserie hanged at the restaurant hall of Peninsula Hotel in Shangai facing the Pund, or freshen up your make up at the powder room in a French villa located in Nice: in every most exclusive location in the world you will find one of Arte Veneziana’s creations.
Nothing has ever defined luxury better than accurate craftsmanship realised thanks to handmade techniques, which have been fine-tuned over the years by artisan hands with rare ability, on materials that have always gone along with human history. Glass is one of these, and Arte Veneziana is the worldwide known atelier that better handle it. Specially when mirrored, engraved or bevelled, used alone or with original combinations, glass still is the spirit of Venetian area and it becomes core of furniture, lighting bodies and accessories that show one-of-a-kind beauty. Arte Veneziana means Zanin’s family, who has handed down the great artistic lagoon tradition for over 40 years, merging the productive knowledge and the ancient styles taste with the research of contemporary tones and new decorative trends.
Nowadays the two brothers Alessandro and Nicola Zanin both manage and look after the heritage of artistic and manufacturing know-how of the company. Their goal is to develop a “company as community”, focussed on the enhancement of human capital and on the fundamental education of young generation to the values of work, the culture of doing good and the respect for the environment.
The company cares for the environment and protects it by controlling resource consumption, minimizing the impact of production on the environment – through elimination of production waste and toxic agents – developing renewable energy and recycling. New precious collections of unique piece of furniture originate from this rigorous work based on constantly updated methods and technologies. They represent an expression of a contemporaneity capable of combining the grace of the past with a visionary and innovative taste: tailor made creations designed for private residences and luxury hotels.
The new interpretation of the past with a contemporary tone relies on the architect Giovanni Luca Ferreri’s mark, who points out a decorative style made of transparency, lights and reflections in every projects. Exclusive decorative elements come from a mixture of glass and mirrored surfaces with the virtue of worthy materials like fabrics, metal, wood and precious stone – used as a modern twist inspired by contemporary lines. For this reasons, Arte Veneziana is symbol of an idea of high-end quality, which merges a wide background fed by refined cultures with unconventional elegance.
