A few words about Barovier & Toso
Barovier&Toso is a Venetian company with a vocation and culture that is international, creating solutions of decorative lighting in Murano glass, all characterised by a personal and unique style.
The top-range lighting sector is the principal reference market in which Barovier&Toso is the leader for product range, implementation quality, style and innovation. The creations have been chosen by some of the most important designers of luxury goods and high fashion (such as Louis Vuitton, Dolce&Gabbana, Cartier, Jaeger LeCoultre, to name but a few) to make their showrooms throughout the world very special. The company collaborates with the world's main hotel chains (Four Seasons, Marriot, Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton) and with the most famous interior architects.
1295 was the year in which the Barovier family began its millenary adventure in the world of glasswork. Everything took place on an island, an exotic, wondrous place like every island: Murano. An act from the year 982 talks of a certain Domenico, a fiolario, or Murano glazier: in 1291 the furnaces of Venice were transferred to this island for fear of fire and in order to preserve the alchemies and secrets of glass far from the competition, confining glaziers to a sort of ghetto. Murano: the first "industrial estate" in the world!
