The Seguso family has been producing hand-blown glass on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy, for more than six hundred years. Twenty-two generations of artisans, entrepreneurs and glass masters with a wide range of skills, have all shared an immense passion for design and craft of hand-blown glass. Today, Seguso holds distinctive Murano brands operating in different distribution channels, always with respect for the authentic Murano tradition. Faithful to its vocation as a patron, the company is also involved in culture and heritage, humanitarian action, education and supporting the Murano Glass Culture.
Seguso is present in the permanent collections of over 75 museums, including MOMA in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Murano Glass Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY. Whether Seguso produces items for the present collection or custom made clients’ designs, the intent is always the same: to explore ways to translate the inherent elegance and luxury of Murano Glass, and create Murano glass jewels for the most elegant interiors in the world.
