Toni Zuccheri is an Italian designer specialising in lighting. Zuccheri studied at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Venice, learning from such renowned masters as Franco Albini, Iganzio Gardella and Carlo Scarpa. Zuccheri inherited his signature style of animal motifs from his father, who was known for his paintings of wildlife. Throughout his career, Toni Zuccheri has created many works with original designs using glass as the dominant material.
In the 1960s, Zuccheri began a collaboration with the famous Venini glass factory, where he mastered techniques of working with colour and form, applying them to his creative works. Zuccheris talent was recognised by industry peers and by 1965 he had already been collaborating with the famous architect Gio Ponti to develop the ground-breaking Vetrate grosse glazing system. He later worked for other manufacturers such as VeArt and Barovier.
