Orsoni is honored to be present at the Dubai Design Week, the region’s largest design festival, with events taking place across several venues in the city.
SHADES OF GOLDEN LUXURY
in Dubai Design District
The 4 meters high installation design, with various shades of gold by Orsoni is the result of the time-honored combination of glass and 24 carat gold, the most precious metal. It’s the evidence of the authentic Venetian craftmanship with a unique quality as each step of the process is handmade.
The purest gold leaf passes through a firing and beating process, then is wrapped between a transparent glass base – the color of which may range from green to aquamarine – and a fine neutral glass layer. As a last step, the masters of Orsoni heat once again all three elements and create a single piece though a process of a well-kept secret.
The various tonalities of gold represent prosperity, achievement and triumph and at the same time are associated with prestige and luxury. The combination of light and color turns the golden surface into a magical, ever-changing artistic installation.

ORSONI exhibits 2 unique masterpieces:
HISTORIC COLOR PANEL by Angelo Orsoni, 1889
The renowned panel created by Angelo Orsoni was born from Orsoni’s color library that preserves more than 3,500 different colors of Venetian enamels.
It was displayed for the first time at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1889. Years later Antoni Gaudí was inspired by its beauty and decided to use smalti Orsoni in the decoration of the Sagrada Familia.
IL VIAGGIO D’ORO by Lucio Orsoni, 1966
A piece of art by Lucio Orsoni that represents all 19 different shades of Orsoni’s gold that are the result of the time-honored combination of glass and 24 karat gold, the most precious metal.
The displayed pieces of art are the result of the precious Venetian craftsmanship that has enabled them to become timeless pieces. They seek to convey emotions through their uniqueness and attention to detail, all firmly rooted in the passion for excellence and art. This philosophy is evident in every tile, found in some of the most important monuments in the world, from the St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice to the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, to the many mosaic masterpieces found in Arabic and Oriental architecture.
