Orsoni is a historical Venetian furnace that uses the same traits since 1888 to produce 24K gold leaf mosaics and enamels in more than 3,500 colors. While it is a traditional Italian company, rather than relying on the past, Orsoni focuses on innovation. The company seeks to convey emotions through its uniqueness and attention to detail, all firmly rooted in its passion for excellence.
Orsoni’s “color library“, is a timeless environment that preserves almost 3,500 enamels of different tones and shades from which was born the famous panel by Angelo Orsoni. This piece of art was displayed for the first time at the Universal Exhibition in Paris back in 1889, where Antonio Gaudí, the Spanish architect was amazed with its beauty. Since then, Gaudí decided to use Orsoni mosaics in the construction of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain.
Orsoni is involved with the realization of several iconic buildings and projects such as: Trocadero and Le Sacre-Coeur in Paris, Saint Paul Cathedral in London, Rudolph Nureyev’s tomb in Paris, Norman Rockwell’s Golden Rule recreated in mosaics and many other masterpieces of Arabic and Oriental architecture.
During Milan Design Week 2017 the company introduced a world premiere -Fascino by Orsoni™- and revolutionized the surfaces industry by being the first company to launch a surface with real micro diamonds.
Orsoni will be one of the historic companies in the Venice Biennale (May 13th – November 11th, 2017), which the Pavilion Venezia will host as evidence of handcrafted Venetian artistic excellence.
In 2003, TREND Group, the world’s leading full-body glass mosaic, gold mosaic and Venetian enamel designer and producer incorporated Orsoni and demonstrated a unique ability to synthesize the essential principles
of Italian tradition with the dynamic creativity of today’s most celebrated designers, architects and artists. This was accomplished while maintaining a commitment to environmental concerns and cultural vibrancy.
