Meteorite originates from the pursuit of a new sensibility, a new expressive language for lighting blown-glass. The starting point was our fancy for Venetian "beaten" glass, for the grinding effect, and for the strong charm of the "unfinished" feel that such kind of process brings to glass. We designed a special glass-blowing and grinding process, which allows to obtain impressive lighting depth in the illuminated object, and to make this beauty accessible.
