Bossa Nova is a collection of lamps in blown glass made by Venetian glassmakers who, masters of an art more and more rare, through gestures that remain the same since eight hundred years, produce unique and precious objects. From the sands wisely measured and pigmented, made to melt in furnaces that reach 1500 ° C, they obtain the vitreous mass that, at the temperature of about 1100 ° C , they works with t wooden and metal tools, and through long and thin iron rods they blow up to create the desired shape. A long and arduous job to make lamps with glass with uneven surfaces, on which are drawn internally fluid and sinuous shapes.
