AfraeTobiaScarpa

a refined, playful and modern vision

Afra and Tobia Scarpa were the first to animate the Henry glass doors with their experience in the world of glass, and their passion for art and life, a passion that was cultivated in the heart of the Venetian countryside, a place accessible only by a weaving and rough dirt road. To protect it, a solid shell was made that contrasts with the surrounding nature: a villa-lab with modern rationalist architecture – seemingly impenetrable, just like its inhabitants.

But once inside, it seems to open up another world. One of the two architects is in a great study with rough walls and windows overlooking the tall grass, because it must be said, their own ideas become natural with a huge pencil drawing on a table, rather than on paper.

DESIGNED FOR HENRY GLASS

Decorations that evoke the ancient Venetian tradition of lead bound glass, whose beauty comes from a combination of purely formal values – such as the originality and linear synthesis of the design along with a careful and skilful technical execution – as well as from the quality of the materials used.
These artists have offered a refined, playful, and utterly modern vision of a classic technique to satisfy the taste of exclusive costumers who love to be surrounded by authentic values.

My poetic art is based on producing any kind of images, architectural or design or painting or sculptural, that interact with people in a poetic manner, that is, that finds friends. If an object of mine finds
its friend, it has done its job.

Biography

An example of the professional and personal relationship, that produced original design forms, full of energetic and brilliant craftsmanship. Afra e Tobia Scarpa, Venetian compatriots and artists, have produced significant works in the field of architecture, restoration and design, receiving numerous awards, including the Golden Compass. These masterpieces seem minimalist, but are rich in tradition and knowledge, which transforms the functional details into distinctive elements.
