Glassmaker Vittorio Livi had a vision: glass should be a focal point in design. In 1973, he founded FIAM and released the Onda pouf. In 1984, FIAM produced the first table made from a single sheet of glass; and in 1987, announced the iconic curved Ghost armchair alongside designer Cini Boeri. Livi continuously works with numerous prestigious international designers on risk-taking pieces ranging from mirrors, chairs, consoles, tables, shelves and cabinets to accessories. Each is meticulously produced through industrial processes and by master craftsmen, who bend, fuse, carve, and silver-coat.
Skilled craftsmanship: Glass is transformed into its finishing product through craftsmen who carry out various operations such as silver-coating, bending, fusing, decorating, engraving, grinding, and carving. A master craftsman works every angle of the product and controls the shape of the glass to create a stunning end product.
Design: Taking risks with shapes and techniques, Fiam is able to produce unconventional pieces by investing in machinery that allows them to create unique designs.
Research: Heavily investing in technology, research becomes important to achieve the product look. Technology being a huge aspect of creating these pieces, it's significant to be aware of updated and ground-breaking technologies to make your vision come to life.
