Ermes Glass – Buzzi Bowl – Aesop Roma

Can one chandelier create a never-ending sunrise?


San Lorenzo in Lucina

Piazza di San Lorenzo in Lucina 28, Rome

The store is located in Piazza di San Lorenzo in Lucina, close to the fifth-century church of San Lorenzo in Lucina, originally a domus ecclesiae—a household that was a place of worship and refuge alike. The tones and materiality of this historic site and other local architecture, such as the Pantheon, held strong sway, along with a genius loci and some of Rome’s memorable personalities: Maria Callas, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Alberto Moravia.
This has been our first collaboration with Studio Luca Guadagnino, and together we created a hand-blown Murano Glass chandelier and a bespoke glassware collection.

The chandelier is an homage to Tomaso Buzzi's work in Murano, which resulted in a large scale hand-blown "incamiciato" orange, white and gold-leaf bowl.
