“The collaboration between the master craftsmanship of the Venetian Glass and the layered geometric form has created this special piece of objet.
Architecture is defined through “Space” and “Time”. Perhaps metaphorically an hour glass can denote architecture. The flow of the sand carries along the thoughts of the past and the future.”
Tadao Ando

Tadao Ando, born in September 13 in Minato-ku, Osaka and raised in Asahi-ku, is a Japanese architect whose approach to architecture was categorized by Francesco dal Co as critical regionalism. Ando has led a storied life, working as a truck driver and a boxer prior to settling on the profession of architecture, despite never having taken formal training in the field.
He visited buildings designed by renowned architects like Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn before returning to Osaka in 1968 and established his own design studio, Tadao Ando Architects and Associates.
He works primarily in exposed cast-in-place concrete and is renowned for an exemplary craftsmanship which invokes a Japanese sense of materiality, junction and spatial narrative through the pared aesthetics of international modernism.
He began his collaboration with Venini in 2011.
