European design brand Sé have moved the production of their acclaimed Moirai lighting collection to the Venetian Island of Murano.
Designed by Switzerland-based Nigerian American designer Ini Archibong, the Moirai lighting collection from Collection IV, Below the Heavens, consists of three families of glass shades which can be combined in different configurations across chandeliers, floor lamps and table lamps.
In designing Archibong’s unique and reimagined Murano glass Gaea Pendant which previewed at Milan Design Week, Sé founder Pavlo Schtakleff and Archibong spent significant time on the island working closely with the master craftsmen, exploring their unique skills, and absorbing the culture of the glassmaking epicentre.
Inspired by the unrivalled craftsmanship, closely guarded colours and the etching and engraving techniques passed from generation to generation, shifting the production of the Moirai collection to Murano was a natural progression for the luxury collectables brand.
Influenced by the mineral rich kaleidoscope palette of colours and tones unique to Murano, Sé have introduced Blu Avino, alongside a new shade of Amethyst and a special edition Rosso to the Moirai collection, with the vibrant hues transforming the aesthetics of the luminaires they adorn.
On the Moirai collection, Sé founder Pavlo Schtakleff comments:
“The tiny island of Murano near Venice has been home to glass artists of unparalleled skill since the 13th century. Sé is privileged to collaborate with some of this magical island’s finest glass artists, not only to produce the unique series of Gaea Pendants, but now also our entire Moirai range of chandeliers, floor lamps and table lamps by Ini Archibong.”
