Since 2008 Alberto Biagetti has worked closely with world renowned Murano glass masters Venini, to create a series of lighting solutions, vases and interiors that combine the ancient art of artistic glass blowing and contemporary design.
The Edi Collection. Venini reinvents the lightbulb but this time the creator is Alberto Biagetti not Thomas Alva Edison, with his own personal interpretation of perhaps the only object that has ever truly given us happiness. The light bulb must be the most spectacular thing ever invented. Those little flares of light, protected by a thin veil of glass have allowed us, with just a simple touch, to walk out of the darkness, making our days longer, illuminating our houses and cities, giving a warmer, more romantic and seductive glow to all things around us. “Edi” is a collection of lights conceived and designed as real light bulbs. The source of light, which in the traditional bulb is the filament, has been turned into a unique glass artwork. The fusion of polichrome canes that stand erect within the glass case glow tantalizingly and soften the tones of the led light.
The Edi Collection is available in two distinct versions: Edi has a round crystal shade that contains the coloured glass canes mounted on a white metal stand whereas Edi Model 1 has a cylindrical crystal shade around the coloured glass canes mounted on an opaque brass coloured metal base.
