United by their shared passion for revitalising contemporary glass the two companies will celebrate the vibrant community of contemporary artists and designers working with Murano glass today. A selection of works conceived by internationally acclaimed designers and artists in collaboration with the glass artisans of Murano will be presented at Fondazione Berengo’s Art Space in Murano and at Berengo Collection, near San Marco, inside one of the oldest pharmacies in Venice dating back to the early 18th century. These two spaces will act as the perfect historical backdrop to showcase a dynamic vision for the future of glass.

As Berengo Studio and WonderGlass come together for this exhibition they combine their expertise and creativity as two leading visionaries in the world of glass, giving new life to this ancient material and consolidating the position of Venice as a leader in the field of glass manufacturing.

The exhibition will include a selection of pieces from WonderGlass and Berengo Studio’s collections alongside new and revisited pieces, some specifically commissioned for GLASS to GLASS, from artists such as Nendo, Maarten Baas, John Pawson and Sam Baron. (Above Gallery)
