The EXTRA collection presents a selection of vases and candle holders designed by Marco Mencacci and realized in Murano by master glassmaker Andrea Zilio, a passionate guardian of the traditional Venetian techniques. Each piece is unique. They are signed by the artist, numbered and delivered with a certificate. Drawing on this century-old craft, Mencacci can transform the material of glass into plasma, evoking the living world of the abyss, tribal rituals, the reflections of oil or latex, the transparencies of sea creatures and the pearliness of shells.
The black freeform shapes of the EXTRA collection describe movement, attraction, tension, repulsion and desire. Organic sinuosities emerge and intertwine, exploring the surrounding space as if they were part of an otherworldly and universal dance.
