The Cartoccio was designed by Pietro Chiesa in 1932

It is a remarkable creation that showcases a distinct quality achieved through its manual production, guaranteeing that each vase is truly unique. Crafted from a single sheet of glass, these vases exhibit a beautiful natural satin finish, achieved by the intricate process of hot folding.

The vase’s allure lies in its elegant shape, reminiscent of a slender and gracefully folded Cartoccio, resembling an inverted veil. As a glass master, Chiesa employed the technique of hot bending a single glass plate, resulting in a vase with unparalleled contours. Notably, each slab forming the vase is meticulously folded by hand, ensuring that every Cartoccio possesses an exclusive and original character.

Since its debut, the Cartoccio has garnered international acclaim, earning a well-deserved reputation as a celebrated piece of glassware. It stands as a true icon of 20th-century design and serves as a perfect complement to any tabletop, radiating grace and charm.
