Carlo Nason

Carlo Nason, the most famous designer of the company was born in Murano in 1935 he grew up in one of the oldest families of Murano glass makers where glass experts introduced him to the most refined techniques. Nason quickly started to collaborate with other glass workshops, with special attention for modern design and achieving a combination of technique and craftsmanship which characterizes all his projects. He has always shown an attitude for innovation without loosing his tradition. He has chosen AV Mazzega most of all in the 70’s and 80’s to develop all the collection, that today is an icon of vintage: the creation of the highest quality at the level of its design.
