Ethereal lights: Bissa & Bissona by Vistosi

Vistosi launched the Bissa and Bissona sculptural table lamps. Originally designed by Luciano Vistosi in 1968, the lamps are made of white crystal blown glass. Bissa and Bissona resemble organically shaped ship funnels, but the glow of the material makes the lamps more ethereal than industrial.

Bissa is the smaller model, measuring eight inches in diameter and 12 inches in height. Bissona is bigger at 9.5 inches in diameter and 16.5 inches in height. Both lamps feature the characteristic bent at the top, which conceals the bulb within.

Vistosi is a Murano-based manufacturer of glass lighting. Although the company officially started in 1945, the Vistosi family has a history in glass making dating back to the sixteenth century. Since the 1960s, Vistosi collaborates with known designers to produce lighting that follows the latest trends.
