Wonderglass: Collaborative Modern Chandeliers By Zaha Hadid, Jaime Hayon, Nendo and Nao Tamura.




Wonderglass is a new international company with headquarters in London and in Venice, dedicated to the production of glass chandeliers, created by the best-known designers on the international scene.



Using glass and light, Wonderglass transcends the boundaries of tradition to experiment with exclusive, avant-garde working techniques resulting in the creation of bespoke items and macro-installations. The hallmarks of the company are innovation, artisanship, the magic of design and colour, versatility and originality meshed with unparalleled Italian craftsmanship. Wonderglass is a network that blends renowned Italian artisan traditions with the vision of famed designers of our times, such as Zaha Hadid and Jaime Hayon.

Wonderglass embraces the traditional technique of glass-blowing, using its special recipe to transform it into a sensual, innovative product: though focusing firmly on contract and project it has not forgotten the world of limited editions.



For the official launch of the brand, Wonderglass in Milan drew upon the time-honoured experience of Venetian master glass-blowers and the contemporary touch offered by artists and designers of international renown, capable of interpreting the beauty of glass in a spectacular, innovative manner paired with the most advanced technological research on lighting.

The Wonderglass products showcased at the 2013 “Salone del Mobile” trace an imaginary journey through Venice, reflections of light are multiplied on the waters of the lagoon, while unexpected shapes amaze with their intricate creativity. Jaime Hayon stages a contemporary carnival with traditional masks, Nao Tamura encounters a multitude of buoys floating on the horizon while Nendo (Collaboration Bisazza–Wonderglass) uses light to describe the appearance of shadows lurking behind the hidden corners of Venetian “calle”, whereas Zaha Hadid (Collaboration Established & Sons–Wonderglass) creates a flock of crystals. Wonderglass chandeliers transport us into a fantastic, enchanted world of marvels.



Thanks to the work of an audacious creative network of artists and designers combined to the longstanding expertise, Wonderglass is able to satisfy all your dreams by bespoke pieces and outstanding creations.

Wonderglass is a unique and necessary actor for a bespoke business in particular where both the glass as a material and the project itself require high level of technical skills.

Flow[T] by Nao Tamura





The reflections of the Venetian cityscape glistening on the evening water hints at an imaginary city below the moving surface. There is a border between the world under and the land above. In the city of Venice, where the real world and fantasy coexists, this chandelier is the embodiment of the beauty of dual worlds.

‘Flow[T]‘ is a contemporary chandelier inspired by the colours of the Venetian lagoon and customised to the desires of each owner. Each piece enjoys its own shape, and in multiples, they create a sculptural display of lighting.

Black Bat by Oki Sato of Nendo, a Collaboration between Bisazza and Wonderglass




A chandelier reminiscent of a colony of bats hanging upside-down from a tree branch or the ceiling of a cave. Evenly-spaced glass shades blown by Murano glass artisans enclose LEDs, and cast their light downwards. Bases can be connected to create a large colony, or removed to make a smaller one.

Masquerade by Jaime Hayon

Swarm Chandelier by Zaha Hadid, a Collaboration between Established & Sons and Wonderglass





The Swarm Chandelier is a composition of black crystal volumes suspended in dynamic forms. The intricately layered spatial composition of the chandelier presents itself as a unified whole; it does not presuppose any proportional system, nor does it privilege symmetry.
