One of the most famous post-war Italian graphic designers, Fulvio Bianconi began his career learning the art of decorating glass at the workshops of Murano under the directorship of Michael Pinto, where he returned later in life to begin his fruitful product design career and establish Murano as the place for production of artistic glass around the globe. Before his innovations, glass had been used for utilitarian purposes. Bianconi pushed the limits of glassmaking in the traditional sense and material of glass itself by transforming it in both theory and practice. His works—lamps, vases, and sculptural objects—were developed coming out of his illustrious graphic design positions at some of the most prestigious publishing houses in Italy, who allowed him to create work for the sake of exploration.
