Overview
More
We are a glass factory founded in the 70s on Murano island, Venice. The company distinguishes itself for the high level of its production, above all chandeliers and sculptures, for the chromatic range of the pure and bright colors of its glassware, for the reckless attitude to experimentation. Simone Cenedese is nowadays one of the more requested and appreciated Murano Master glass maker.
