Our studio, our equipment, our team and our showroom are completely at their disposal.

« Les galets Côte d’Azur France »: the new collection by Pierini Verre Contemporain
Antoine Pierini, glass blower and sculptor, imagined this new collection of pebbles as a tribute to the region where he was born. Presented in the form of personalized tryptiques, Galets Côte d'Azur France are inspired by emblematic places of the French Riviera: each shade, each asperity is a reflection of the multiple beauty of the region.
It is upon the launch of the brand « Côte d’Azur France » that Comité Régional du Tourisme Côte d’Azur has chosen Pierini Verre Contemporain to represent crafts. The ambition is international, as is the influence of the French Riviera as a tourist destination ...
