    WonderGlass celebrated the opening of their new London showroom and gallery space in the design district of Fitzrovia during London Design Festival 2018. To mark the opening, WonderGlass invited London-based design duo Raw-Edges to curate their first installation.

    Founded in 2013, Christian and Maurizio Mussati built their brand through bespoke glass lighting and installations handcrafted in Murano, working with renowned Artists including Zaha Hadid, Jaime Hayon, John Pawson, Nao Tamura, Dan Yeffet, Hideki Yoshimoto and Marcel Wanders. 

    Now working with their team of WonderLab artisans in the Venetian region and collaborating with leading names in design such as Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Richard Meier and WOHA architects. WonderGlass offers architects, artists, developers, hotel designers and museums the opportunity to incorporate artisanal creations into projects of any scale.

    For the inaugural installation, Raw-Edges showcased their iconic work Horah crafted and engineered by WonderGlass. The collection, displayed in the space as a selection from the limited edition series, reflects on the theme of light in dialog with one of the essential aspects of contemporary living: sociability. Inspired by Horah, the Israeli dance, Raw-Edges explore an ongoing theme of repetition with a lighting installation that is imbued with an essential quality in the dance: conviviality. 

    Each lamp features curving glass "leaves" attached to a pivoting motor, the glass sections expertly composed using glass casting techniques. Light is concealed at the centre, creating a gradient of illumination. 

    Also featured in the space will be glass compositions and unique prototypes showcasing the skills of the WonderLab workshops in the Venetian region. 

    Designed by architect, Massimo De Conti, the space is inspired by the galleries of Lower Manhattan mixed with the buzz of London’s Fitzrovia, where the new showroom and gallery is located, as well as reflecting the essence of the WonderGlass DNA. 

    “Since launching, WonderGlass have been looking forward to creating a space where the company can showcase our collections and experiment with new possibilities. The gallery envelopes our DNA as artisans to provide tailor-made solutions with the transparent material of hand-blown glass, cast glass and all its bespoke variations.” Commented Founders Maurizio and Christian Mussati.

    WonderGlass has also been participating in two further exhibitions with Matter of Stuff, a London based contemporary design and research gallery - as part of Matter of Stuff’s new concept pop up gallery in Kings Cross, and within ‘Blown Away’, an installation exploring the hand-blown glass movement at sketch in Mayfair. Pieces on show by WonderGlass will include Horah by Raw-Edges, Rise by Hideki Yoshimoto and Echoes by studiopluz.
