In 1955, two creative minds Pierangelo Gallotti and Luigi Radice’s shared passion for glass led them to establish a space that showcased the combined talents of innovation and tradition of carving out pieces in glass. They were small, but each one was a piece of art. Some lighting pieces, some mirrors or some furnished sofas, each one stood out as an example of their individual abilities as master craftsmen and they were all hand made. And the world sat up and noticed!
Take a look at some of these pieces of art that we have on display and if your heart so desires you could be the proud possessor of these exquisite pieces.
The artists realised that passion alone could not survive and they needed to expand and grow in order for the world to remember them. So both of them decided to enrol themselves in design and decoration courses at Sforza Castle and at the School of Industrial Art and imbibed every technical aspect of design in detail. And thus was born Gallotti & Radice.
They brought in fresh talent that was equally passionate about glass and its need to be treated specially with every piece. Only those that understood perseverance, research and the secrets that make up these pieces were brought in. And only the best craftsmen survived.
Their first collaborated designed piece ‘Adam’ a furniture display cabinet pane commissioned by architect Luigi for a furniture store in Milan, made them a success overnight. The first table made completely from light was thus born. It was 1971. Since then there was no looking back.
