LU(ni-in)verso, Palazzo Franchetti

From 20 December 2008 to May 24, 2009 LU(ni-in)verso a work of the master glassmaker Fabio Fornasier lights up the Grand Canal from the garden of Palazzo Franchetti. 2008 was a conceptual turning point for LU Chandelier. From the transparency of the early versions lit with oil to the colours of the later LU models that challenge the imagination with rainbow-coloured translucencies and metallic reflections, Fornasier added the finishing touch to the product by designing a fibre optic lighting system. By the end of the year, LU Chandelier was to return to the Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti building, to the IVSLA Veneto arts and sciences institute, with an individual exhibition, LU(ni-in)verso. “LU(ni-in)verso throws off its role as an interior design piece and becomes conceptual Venetian glass art” says the Master Glassmaker. The raw material used for the new creation is the Idea. After a spell on display in the grounds of Palazzo Franchetti on the Grand Canal, LU(ni-in)verso moved to Murano to connect with one of Venice’s rarest and most demanding architectural spaces, the Basilica of Santa Maria e Donato.
