A Romantic Tale of Design and Craft
Murano has always been the most mysterious and magical among the islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Here alchemists and glassblowers have worked together for over one thousand years to invent glassmaking techniques and color recipes that have been one of the best kept secrets in the ancient Serenissima Republic of Venice. Today we work side by side with expert Maestros with the same traditional techniques but with our disruptive design vision.
Origin
Our story begins long before Francesco Palù and Edoardo Pandolfo, Ermes Glass' founders, met in 2016 and started designing together in Milan. In fact they were both exposed to Murano's rich heritage, Francesco by his family, avid glass collectors, and Edoardo, Venetian by birth, has been exploring the furnaces of Murano since childhood, where he discovers the magic of artistic glass.
Process
When we create something in Murano we feel the pressure of eternity: although glass might seem fragile, its beauty never fades throughout the centuries. That is why we need to be deeply immersed in our time, with an open minded attitude towards the future and a solid knowledge about our predecessors, leaving our imagination to guide the creation through the hands of the artisans.
Jewels of Glass and Light
The fil rouge in Ermes' work is our relationship with light, an intrinsic element of beauty and an essential component of any human space. We create glass sculptures and chandelier that catalyze light, spreading joyful energy around them.
