Designer Luca Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976 and raised on the small island of Murano. As a child he didn’t understand that designing was a profession and something that people worked with. To him it was the norm – present in every part of daily life. With a glassblower grandfather, family, friends and neighbours in the glass industry, there really wasn’t anything else. And it was growing up in this environment, with the glassblowing craft and the island’s wealth of colour that eventually made their mark on his artistic style.
