Ideas for tomorrow


ca. 1965

Late creation by Ermanno, this line of vases is different from traditional Fratelli Toso style. Murrina is essential and stylised on a clear background: it fits well with 60's trends, when crystal and essential design where preferred.

We have some prototypes of this line which never got into production: it was an idea by Ermanno for MACEF, some new ideas to be developed in the future.

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.
