WonderGlass bonds traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design, providing tailor-made solutions to the worlds of architecture, art and fashion – telling a story through our creations we aim to bring individuals into a delightful WonderLand. A surrealistic and dreamlike atmosphere which creates a seamless landscape of lighting, subtle colours and visual elements forming a world that captures people’s imagination.
Founded in 2013, Christian and Maurizio Mussati built their brand through bespoke glass lighting and installations handcrafted in Murano, working with renowned creative minds including Zaha Hadid, Jaime Hayon, India Mahdavi, John Pawson, Nao Tamura, Marcel Wanders, Dan Yeffet and Hideki Yoshimoto.
Now working with their team of WonderLab artisans in the Venetian region and collaborating with leading names in design and architecture such as Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, nendo, RML (Ana Meier & Hervé Descottes) and WOHA architects – WonderGlass offers architects, artists, developers, hotel designers and museums the opportunity to incorporate artisanal creations into projects of any scale.
WonderGlass is able to offer an array of glass solutions – drawing from the tradition of Venetian craftsman to create unique masterpieces by using glass blowing or cast glass techniques.
The combination of inventive, original design and traditional handmade quality is what makes WonderGlass a unique brand on the international artistic scene. We are inspired by the idea of finding that ever evolving point of balance between the innovation of the lighting industry, human sensibility and the frontiers of craftsmanship.
Our aim is to create dialogue between nature and technology, a perfect combination of knowledge and intuition which we aim to satisfy through coupling fantasy and interactivity and the tangible with the intangible. We encourage people to notice those things they take for granted; to reach an unconscious recognition that everyone instinctively feels and understands.
“Glass is unique and magical in a multitude of ways. It is the only material that is natural, flexible, you can see through it and there is a strict unbreakable relationship with light. Innovation is about the process of translating an idea into a good or service that creates value. To be called as such an idea must be replicable at an economical cost and/or satisfy a need. Innovation is synonymous with risk-taking and organisations that create revolutionary products. In this broad sense, we are marrying the skills of the artisan glass makers of Venice, with so many years of history, of experience, with contemporary designers and architects to produce what is essentially a unique, bespoke collection. We want to make an environment unique through the sense of glass. It transcends and creates, an environment that can be both mystic and spiritual.”
