Combining artistic vision and technical know-how, this Vie en Rose table from Daniela Forti’s Jellyfish Collection uses a technique known as glass fusing to net a truly seaworthy statement. Artisans melt the glass at high temperatures and then let it slowly cool with the help of gravity—giving the piece a fluid, jelly-like feel. For more designs inspired by coastal critters, turn to page 64.

For Milan Design Week 2021.

Artemest presents a curated exhibition of bespoke artisanal pieces inspired by water: never-before-seen design objects, elevated to artworks, on view at the prestigious Senato Hotel Milano

Milan, August 2021 For Milan Design Week 2021, Artemest presents AQVA: a gallery-like exhibition of never-before-seen artworks and design pieces inspired by the theme of water, handmade by Italian artisans and showcased in a gallery-like setting at the exclusive Senato Hotel Milano. Italian design and craftsmanship celebrate the city of Milan through a reinterpretation of its ancient waters: the project, under the artistic direction of Milanese architects Ciarmoli Queda Studio, stems from the desire to bring the hidden waters of the city to the surface, drawing the eye to celebrate the importance of water as a source of life and energy. “We decided to explore one of the most mysterious elements of the city of Milan, revisiting it through the eyes of master craftsmen and designers to create an immersive, visually stunning experience conceived as a museum exhibition. Each work comes alive through the most distinctive attributes of water: reflection, transparency, movement and fluidity said Ippolita Rostagno, founder and Creative Director of Artemest. The exhibition features handcrafted pieces from all over Italy, meant to surprise and fascinate the viewer.

The Aqva water source by Daniela Forti is glass artwork depicting water as a ceaseless source of life whose flow won’t stop. The photoluminescence technology featured in the piece allows it to shine in the dark for several hours, exponentially emphasizing its sculptural appeal.


She lives and works in Tuscany, in the Chianti area, where she created her works of art by glass fusing. After experience as an interior decorator, she fell in love with glass and its plasticity and dedicated herself to moulding it into fluid forms, individualizing a personal interpretation of this malleable substance.Leggi di più

Dripping Glass Fusion “Jellyfish” Sculptures by Daniela Forti

Artist Daniela Forti lives and works in Chianti, Tuscany where she produces these fantastic artworks of dripped glass. She refers to the pieces as “Jellyfish” because of their undulating tentacles that are formed by hand through a melted glass fusion process. Each piece appears to balance like a small platter or table atop colorful, spindly drips that somehow manage to support the weight above. Many examples of her work are on view (and also available) over at Artemest.
