Nerox

 

ca. 1951

This piece belongs to the first line of Nerox produced by Fratelli Toso: a particular kind of black which turnishes when glass cools down.

It has been exhibited at Venice Biennale in 1952 within the "modern pieces".

Collection by Ermanno Toso

Ermanno Toso (1903 - 1973) Employed in the factory since 1924, he has been Fratelli Toso artistic director from 1936 until his death in 1973. Ermanno was an eclectic designer: he managed to modernize the traditional murrina, joining and mixing tradition with modernity.
