about

Designed by Luca Nichetto for Salviati.

Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976, where he studied at the Art Institute. He began his business career in 1999 by designing his first products made of Murano glass for Salviati. In 2006, he founded his own agency, Nichetto&Partners, which deals both with Industrial Design and Design Consultancy.

There are six pieces in the Millebolle range which all contain large air bubbles. Seemingly impossible in concept to be trapped in the glass, it takes huge skill to control the air contained, as the glass is heated the air expands and so commences a battle of restraint.
