Gritti: a new way of thinking about light, a new vision of the whole. An Art-Design born from the high expression capacity of the ancient art of glass processing and an innovative reading of light sources. A new project that finds its foundations in a historic Venetian reality capable of thinking and evolving. Thought and evolution, man and the person are an intrinsic synonym in our abilities.

The collaboration with Marc Sadler therefore leads to the union of two parallel worlds that borders on the new Gritti project: when a millenary art meets Design. Marc Sadler conceives and thinks for Gritti a series of products with an advanced technical content and then covering it with the fruit of that ancient art that is glass.
With the Lumina Naturae event, during the Design Week of the Milan Fuorisalone in September 2021, Gritti lands on the international scene with 7 product concepts. A preview of Gritti's thinking.
It was in the following months that Andrea, Herris and Marc worked closely together to give shape and voice to Gritti's way.
The year in witch at the Light & Building event in Frankfurt in October Gritti presented it's creations.
