Vetreria Archimede Seguso 1946–
Vetreria Archimede Seguso was founded in 1946 by Archimede Seguso, partner and glassmaster at Seguso Vetri d’Arte until 1942. Seguso was not only the tireless creator of almost all the collections produced by Vetreria Archimede Seguso, he executed his own works and experimented with new techniques and materials. He participated in the Biennali di Venezia and the Triennali di Milano from 1950 on, presenting, among other things, his own personal interpretations of the ancient technique of filigrana. His interpretaions, vessels often enriched with applications of gold leaf, he called Merletti. The company is now run by his son Gino Seguso, with the assistance of his grandson Antonio Seguso.
