20 Nov VeniceM: Sculptural and functional architectural lighting
- Gineico Lighting is the national distributor for VeniceM
- Newly released product VeniceM Misty Collection and the Spear Chandelier
- The Urban range of lighting is an affordable option
- The Less collection mixes LED strip and traditional light fittings
- Designed and handcrafted Italian lighting
Gineico Lighting imports architectural lighting from VeniceM an emerging Italian lighting design studio who produces elegant handcrafted lights with Murano glass. The lighting collection uses simple forms – squares and circles and works them into sculptural and functional lighting.
Lighting designers Melissa Lunardi and Massimo Tonetto make up VeniceM which they founded in 2013. The use of brass and dark nickels is a modern industrial touch that adds a dark element to the palette that is toned down and softened with the Murano glass.
Venice M has newly released the Misty and Spear Chandelier, two lights contrasting each other greatly in style.
The Misty Collection comes in a table, floor and pendant configuration emitting a diffused light when turned on. Misty is detailed with a natural burnished brass structure and white blending blown glass diffuser. The Misty collection of lights are perfect in residential projects where a modern look is required. Great for areas where you would like to brighten a space with a wash of ambient light.
Pierluigi Gambacorti, Gineico lighting Director and VeniceM national distributor says, “The Misty range mixes elegant design and the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship. Misty is a favourite with Architects, Interior Designers and Lighting Designers because it gives a warm, welcoming light, deep but not intrusive in the space.”
Striking and futuristic the Spear Chandelier, with its nickel spears provides indirect and direct light to an interior. With a height of 98 cm and a diameter of 160 cm it is perfect as a statement light. The luminaire is available in polished black nickel, matte black nickel or light burnished brass finish. The Spear Chandelier can be used in both commercial and retail applications.
The best value VeniceM luminaire is the Urban collection. The table, desk, floor, suspended and sconce light configuration is an exquisite balance of straight lines, graduating soft and round forms. The spherical white Murano mouth-blown glass diffuser screens the light making it soft and relaxing. The metal shades come in a matte black or a light burnished brass finish.
The Less collection is visual balance inspired, using the right balance of form and fine lines. The burnished natural brass fixture can have from one to five 150 mm satin glass diffusers. The brass frame can also be supported with a vertical or horizontal LED strip light. Less is accompanied by self-supporting black fabric cords and steel cables with a rapid fixing system.
Liane Cooper from Design Library Australia used the Less pendant when styling her clients home in Melbourne’s South Yarra. Sara says, “We worked with Gineico Lighting to find a sculptural light for the void in the entrance hallway. Looking for a combination of luxury and elegance, the Less pendant stood out for us. The beautiful burnished brass finish adds so much warmth into the house. We are so fortunate to have the spheres and architectural lines reflected on another wall during the day, and glowing atmospherically at night.”
VeniceM light fixtures all come with dimmers.
