“We were born in Murano and we are in love with our glass. This is why we created Murano Gallery LUAB 4.0, a new concept of art gallery dedicated to glass, which welcomes Italian and international designers and artists who, in this place, exhibit, create and make unique and unrepeatable work.”
Murano Gallery LUAB 4.0 is a space dedicated to research and experimentation, which includes furnaces, laboratories and halls for exhibitions and events.
The Gallery was born thanks to the determination and enthusiasm of our founders, Francesco Scarpa, Ivano Seno, Andrea Perotta and Fabio Fornasier. We are lovers and profound connoisseurs of the Murano glass art, we are the descendants of the glass masters of the Serenissima and we have undertaken different experiences in the glass sector: some of us are glass company managers, some glass art dealers and some master glassmakers. We have combined passion and expertise to restore an old factory in Murano and create a new reference centre for the Murano blown glass.
We do not want the quality of Murano glass to get lost especially here where it was born almost a thousand years ago and we wouldn’t like, in today’s global world, the glass tradition to remain exclusive and limited to our island.
Murano Gallery LUAB 4.0 wants to be a space open to comparison and to the contamination of ideas and creativity.
This is why we welcome artists and designers from all over the world who find here the right atmosphere for their research and creations; artist that want to create with glass, an ancient material made of sand, fire and a breath of air, which offers endless possibility of shapes and colours.
Here by us you can find unique and unrepeatable Murano glass artworks
For this reason we are always welcoming enthusiasts and decorators from all over the world; they discover artworks, that could not be created anywhere else than here, born thanks to this perfect environment that frees the creativity of artists and designers.
We have restored an old factory; we have chosen a modern and minimal style, where the glass works could be enhanced thanks to the essentiality of the place where they are displayed.
We have chosen to leave exposed beams and bricks and to insert iconic design solutions for the furnishings, in order to underline our choice to preserve the tradition where to graft the contemporary culture, open to the world.

For the renovation of the Murano Gallery LUAB 4.0 spaces we have involved the excellences of design and craftsmanship, who have become our partners in the new set-up of the rooms.
The company Tubes Radiatori has supplied the radiators, examples of technological innovation and design, designed by well known architects. In the LUAB spaces you can find the following models: Milan, Soho, Square, Rift and Add-on, style icons as well as a functional accessory, perfectly in line with the glass artworks.
Cantiere Daniele Manin laid dolphin wood floors in the main hall of LUAB. This is the result of an idea to re-use wood and craftsmanship; in fact the parquet has been obtained from the wood of the dolphin, the distinctive disused nautical signs of the Venetian Lagoon.
De Castelli is the company that has interpreted our style in creating our furniture containers, with elements in pickled metal that combine design, art and crafts while the Diesel Living 2014 sofas are our design furniture, result of the research, talent and skills of Moroso, a company that produces upholstered furniture in collaboration with internationally renowned designers. In the kitchen the dolphin wood is used again, for the shelves, while for the appliances we have chosen the top of technology of Gaggenau. Finally the bathrooms are signed by Boffi, the furniture company that has made of tradition and innovation the main elements of their collections. Eventually, the New Murano Gallery is in charge of the sale consultancy and Fabio Fornasier for the artistic direction, the selection of glass works and artists.
