For centuries the name Seguso has been associated with glass art from Murano. Archimede Seguso (1909-1999) is the master glassmaker of the family history of the 20th century. In the 1950s Archimede showd all his genius with creations like the "Merletto" (lacework) the "Reticello Piume" (feathers) or the "Polvery" (powdered) series. The cooperation with Tiffany & Co allowed Seguso new opportunities for great collections. In 1989 Archimede Seguso celebrated his 80th birthday in New York with a solo exhibition - the title speaks for itself: The Master of the Masters. His worldwide exhibitions are always a box office hit and are sometimes extended twice.
