Leading Venetian glass manufacturer Venini collaborates creatively with innovative international flower artists to craft a collection of glass vases. Philippa Craddock, Nikki Tibbles, Anna ten Donkelaar and Mantas Petruskevicius are among the talents who will not only collaborate with Venini but also design bespoke bouquets to complement these exquisite vases and draw visitors into an enchanting floral garden. The idea of “blossoming” has in itself the very concept of creativity and know-how helping each other to find their respective, most beautiful shape and identity. The project by Sylvain Roca accentuates the enchantment of this fairy tale flower garden.
