About the Designer
Luciano Vistosi (1931 - )
Luciano Vistosi was born in Murano in 1931 and spent his childhood and most of his teenage years working by his family's kiln, where he learns the techniques to discover the moods, colors, sounds and tastes of the old tradition of master glass craftsmen. After completing his studies, his career as an artist appears to be immediately marked by a strong vocation for experimental research. The fact of being left-handed forced him to reinvent the tools to work with glass. The search for absolute designs, the determination to put the quality of materials first, followed by style, and the belief that drawings are only the starting point of a work that can follow various paths lead to the creation of his glass sculptures. From the 60s he has held a number of solo exhibitions and has taken part in exhibitions all over the world: from Venice to San Francisco, from Madrid and Cologne to Japan. In managing the family-run business, Vetreria Vistosi, which he directed up until 1984, Luciano Vistosi gave a fundamental contribution to its development by taking the brand beyond a conservative approach to design. He designed a number of collections and his items are still manufactured today, also under the pseudonym Michael Red. Some of his works have recently been selected as unique and remarkable artistic representations of cars for the 'Auto-mobile un tratto che ha cambiato la vita' exhibition held in Turin for the 100th anniversary of ACI (Italian Automobile Club).
