Sophistication, extreme care for details, artisan quality: Slowear and Carlo Moretti’s glass factory truly share most of their core values - including their origins, rooting in Venice’s authentic arts and crafts.
 
To celebrate this innate syntony, we planned something special on the occasion of the forthcoming Salone del Mobile: Slowear’s sartorial style meets Carlo Moretti’s sophisticated design at our via Solferino Milan boutique, where the whole collection of Moretti’s Bora glasses will be on display and available for purchase from April 11 to 21
 
The Carlo Moretti Temporary Emporium @ The Slowear Store will be an exclusive opportunity for viewing the whole collection of 54 unique artisan pieces whose design is inspired by the north-eastern wind of the same name. Asymmetrical and almost ‘bent’ by a strong blast, these glasses look as if they had been struck by a sudden gust when still incandescent and in the process of being made by glass artisans.
 
An incredibly evocative image that gave birth to a set of transparent Murano crystal glasses with an irregular, tilted shape, individually signed and dated. 
 
“All Bora glasses are mouth blown”, explain the master glassmakers, “and there is no standard manufacturing time - it all depends on the decoration of each single piece, all of which are strictly hot applied”.
 
If you wish to bring home a piece of this gorgeous collection, this could be just the right occasion to take a look at the whole collection. The Carlo Moretti Emporium @ The Slower Store Milano Solferino will be open starting April 11 at 6 p.m.
