Elementi Lagunari

Elementi Lagunari were among the first well-known collections by Luciano Gaspari for Salviati, and are a perfect example of the aesthetics of the 1950s. These abstract and evocative elements hint at the dolphin structures in the Venetian Lagoon. They are made of grey or pink solid glass and have a thin white or teal internal thread that rises from the base along the vertical axis of the element, becoming thinner towards the top. The compact spherical or disc shapes at the top are heat bonded to the tapered body. The difficulty in this piece is to maintain the verticality of the element, preventing any geometric distortion.
