Gino Vistosi

Gino Vistosi was not the designer of these disc lamps, despite everybody says it. Several lamp producers on the Murano island made these chandeliers. In all probability, most of them are made by AV Mazzega

These lamps were a big hit and they were made for more than 30 years. Few are marked with a label. Today new chandeliers are in production, beware!

AV Mazzega

AV Mazzega was founded in 1946 by Angelo Vittorio Mazzega. In 1950 his son Gianni Bruno Mazzega started working in the family’s glass factory. Gianni Bruno Mazzega is responsible for the creation of many beautiful lamps.

Today, under the watchful eye of Andrea Mazzega, grandson of Angelo Vittorio, the company works together with high-level international designers. Andrea is the president of the company since 2000. The company is renamed in Mazzega 1946; the year AV Mazzega was founded. 

Designers that worked for AV Mazzega – Mazzega 1946 are among others Carlo NasonAldo Nason, Christophe Pillet, Michele De Lucchi, Giovanni Barbato, Paolo Piva, Sam Baron, Gasmi Chafik, Oriano Favaretto and Riccardo Giovanetti.

This is how this chandelier looks like when not lit.
