The mysterious charm of odalisques has bewitched artists and painters for centuries on end – from Raphael to Matisse and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Now it casts its spell on Leonardo Ranucci, who captures it on glass.
A free and inventive approach to industrial design, this is the path that Leonardo Ranucci’s consultancy firm has embarked on. Ranucci deals with the creation and development of some important jewellery and fashion brands in Italy and abroad, in a constant attempt to discover new trends.
As a passionate jewellery designer, he works out his precious suggestions by levering on stylistic antitheses: art and experimentation, rigour and imagination, essence and elaboration, ethnic references and technological innovations all come together in his works in a consistent and harmonic whole, giving life to an unmistakable style that looks towards the future, which is as eclectic as it is flexible. The echo of continuous journeys feeds new inspirations, fragments of beauty and poetry reinterpreted in a modern key. In 2003, he became part of the VENINI world, where he has moved from classical jewellery to glass jewels.
