The charming story of Barovier and Toso started in 1295 in Murano (Venice, Italy) where the glass company has been established and is still based: it was when the first Barovier was mentioned as a glass master in official documents about the emerging art of glass blowing.
This story has continued from generation to generation, overcoming wars, eras, styles and tastes unscathed, with an ability to transformation and innovation that only passion and dedication can instill. Angelo the Great and his “clear crystal” around 1450, Ercole and his inventions and designs in the 20th Century: separated by five hundred years, they were so similar in their brilliance and sensitivity as to understand the change that their respective periods imposed in order to pass on an art to this day and age.
Even today, Barovier & Toso interprets the tastes of the period by combining the glass tradition of its forefathers with trends and innovations in style and technology. In doing so, it enhances the life and emotions of those who know how to capture the nuances of “beauty”.
