Gineico Lighting presents a new collection of Italian designed architectural lights from VeniceM for residential and commercial settings. Distributed by Gineico Lighting in Australia, VeniceM – founded by lighting designers Melissa Lunardi and Massimo Tonetto – is an emerging Italian lighting design studio that produces elegant handcrafted lights with Murano glass.

Featuring simple forms such as squares and circles, the lighting collection uses brass and dark nickel to add a modern industrial touch. Murano glass is used to tone down the dark elements in the lighting design palette.  

The latest additions to VeniceM’s collection are the Misty Collection and Spear Chandelier – two lights that contrast each other in style and setting.

The Misty Collection

Available in table, floor and pendant configurations, the Misty range emits a diffused light, and is perfect for residential interiors with a modern vibe. Misty lights feature a natural burnished brass structure and a white blending blown glass diffuser. The Misty Collection works well in spaces that need brightening with a wash of ambient light.

Pierluigi Gambacorti, Gineico Lighting director says, “The Misty range mixes elegant design and the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship. Misty is a favourite with architects, interior designers and lighting designers because it gives a warm, welcoming light, deep but not intrusive in the space.”

Spear Chandelier

Designed for commercial and retail environments, the Spear Chandelier with its nickel spears has a futuristic appearance. With a height of 98cm and diameter of 160cm, it is perfect as a statement light that provides both indirect and direct light to an interior space. The Spear Chandelier is available in polished black nickel, matte black nickel or light burnished brass finish.

The Urban Collection

Part of VeniceM’s affordable architectural lighting range, the Urban Collection consists of table, desk, floor, suspended and sconce lights. A perfect balance of straight lines, and graduating soft and round forms, these fixtures feature a spherical white Murano mouth-blown glass diffuser that screens the light for a soft and relaxing effect. The metal shades come in a matte black or light burnished brass finish.

The Less Collection

The Modrian-inspired Less Collection combines a burnished natural brass frame with one to five 150mm satin glass diffusers. The brass frame can also be supported with a vertical or horizontal LED strip light. Self-supporting black fabric cords and steel cables with a rapid fixing system complete the fixture.

Sara Smith, who used the Less pendant when styling her home in Melbourne’s South Yarra, says, “We worked with Gineico Lighting to find a sculptural light for our void in the entrance hallway. Looking for a combination of luxury and elegance, the Less pendant stood out for us. The beautiful burnished brass finish adds so much warmth into the house. We are so fortunate to have the spheres and architectural lines reflected on another wall during the day, and glowing atmospherically at night.”

All VeniceM light fixtures are supplied with dimmers.
