On the occasion of the 62nd edition of Salone del Mobile, WonderGlass transforms Milan’s Istituto dei Ciechi with CONTRASTO, 16 through 20 April 2024 – displaying two new lighting collections by nendo and Formafantasma.

With a focus on the reciprocity of differences, CONTRASTO seeks out tension and intrigue: between light and darkness, between the textural and the smooth, between the opaque and the transparent, and ultimately from the transfiguration of glass from molten to solid states. In the nineteenth-century concert hall of Istituto dei Ciechi, the time-honoured traditions of glassmaking are reinterpreted by WonderGlass’s master artisans in collaboration with contemporary design changemakers who embrace this alluring equivocation.
