Veronese's creative director, Ruben Jochimek came up with a luminous idea to use the vast numbers of iconic pieces of Murano glass in Veronese's archive room. Jochimek contacted Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, to create unique chandeliers with these forgotten treasures of almost nine decades. The pieces in a rainbow of sparkling colors and textures were used as replacement parts or for restoration projects.
World famous for using waste, scrap, and residual materials to design furniture, Piet Hein Eek was the explicit preference for Mr. Jochimek to collaborate with. Together they created a design concept called PAST & FUTURE, consisting of several moving elements that can be mixed and matched to set up and adapt a chandelier, over and over again. Each product will include Murano glass pieces handpicked and positioned, like flowers for a bouquet, by Piet Hein Eek, from the Veronese storage rooms. Once a chandelier is installed, one can simply move the Murano glass elements around and choose new patterns – extending the creative process.
