About Chiaramonte & Marin
Alfredo Chiaramonte was born in Bologna in 1961 and studied at the Faculty of Architecture of Venice. Marco Marin was born in Venice in 1964 and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts specializing in industrial design. The different activities experienced through the years (interiors, graphics, industrial and lighting design) brought to a mixed knowledge, contaminated by ideas developed in many fields. The long term working experience with the glass factories of Murano allowed blending two industries seemingly different, with the creation of a range of glassware.
