Coloured glass is the magic material that is often present in these projects and that is essential in our interpretation of contemporary luxury idea.

The projects of Vetreria Airoldi office and showroom has been a particular opportunity of experimentation on glass; in this case the work place becomes a self-made theatrical exhibition of own job and own particular technical skill like a “business card”:…this is my work!

Stair is a monomaterical element in structural glass, assembled without visible fixing screws. The idea is to use three glass screen with horizontal glass bands glued lacking a space where inserting glass stair-steps, like shelves blocked by sides.

Footbridge on the first floor, parapets, partition walls with sliding doors, display windows and black reception too are completely built by glass, in various colours and texture in order to become a own-work’s exhibition.
