Description

“Brina” means frost and is a collection of vases which have been mouth blown and shaped free-hand by skilled glass masters on the island of Murano.

The refined and ancient glass making technique used to join the pale pink lower part with the upper part of the vase is called “incalmo”. “Incalmo” is a glass manufacturing technique that allows the creation of an object made up of distinct parts which are joined together while the glass is hot. This technique, in use since the Middle Ages, requires great precision because the parts to be joined must have the same diameter and compatibility of colors and temperature.

The delicate and thin white pattern in the upper part of the vase is realized using a “filigrana” technique. “Filigrana” is a sophisticated and complex decorative technique invented in Murano in the first half of the 16th century; it requires not only a remarkable skill on the part of the master glassmaker, but also a long process of realization. In fact, before the creation of the vase, thin glass rods containing “lattimo” white glass threads must be made by hand. The rods are then arranged on a metal plate, heated to the melting point, and a cylindrical item is then made to roll over them so that they adhere to it. The item can then finally be shaped.

Each piece is handcrafted and signed. Sizes and shapes vary slightly and subtle markings and/or small air bubbles may be seen in the glass.

About the designer


Laura Sattin

Laura Sattin (1989) is an Italian architect and designer. Born in Vicenza, she studied Architecture between Italy, Switzerland and Japan and now lives and works in Basel. In 2015 she was awarded 1st prize in the international Glass Design competition ‘Un goto per Venezia’ and her set ‘Un giorno in laguna’ was acquired as part of the permanent collection of the Murano Glass Museum. This event marked the beginning of her work with blown glass, which since then she carries on in parallel with her career as an architect. Laura’s deep appreciation for the skills of the master glassblowers guides her research, which focuses on the study of the many different glassblowing techniques. Her glassworks, characterised by the careful combination of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary aesthetics, are objects with simple shapes, which aim to emphasise the peculiarities of the material and the handicraft process. In 2018 Laura Sattin was selected as 1 out of 5 young artists/designers ‘under 30’ invited to exhibit at DESIGNART Tokyo, the largest design event in Japan. Lately, in September 2021, she has been selected by the curator of DesignMiami/ and invited to exhibit her glassworks in a large installation at the DesignMiami/ Basel edition of the fair.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
