Past and present
Umberto Sorrentino, born in 1932, began his activity at the end of the Sixties exporting lighting articles, at first to Germany and later to the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Arab Emirates), beginning a almost fifty years long career. In Middle-Eastern countries he offers a wide range of articles, from the renowned Murano glass product to the just as refined item in Swarovski crystal, distinguishing itself for ability of creating chandeliers of great dimensions.
Thanks to the ability of welcoming andsatisfying clients’ needs with customedsolutions and a catalogue of products able to meet the local taste and style, in the Eighties Umberto Sorrentino became sorenowned in the Middle East to be called by the Saudi Arabian royal family, for which he created important projects
During the course of the Nineties he entered the U.S. market with the realization of several projects, among which an important casino in Las Vegas. Since 2000, he has worked almost exclusively with Saudi Arabian members of the government and of the royal family. After over forty years of activity on the international market, Umberto Sorrentino is now a point of reference for famous Middle-Eastern interior designers and architects.
We are able to satisfy, today as much as in the past, different furnishing and style needs. One of our peculiarities is the possibility of realizing unique and particolar models, accomodating the different needs of a diverse and international client base

It is an old question, whether
talent counts more than technique:
I do not know what use study
would have without inspiration.
Quintus Horatius Flaccus,
The catalogue offer a wide range of traditional and modern, classic and contemporary articles. Traditional Venetian style chandeliers, faithful reproductions of antique models or restyled with a modern feel, or chandeliers with a contemporary, experimental, innovative design
Renovation, evolution, experimentation have led a traditional furnishing object such as the chandelier to be today a refined design object. This is achieved also thanks to the material used for its realization: glass. Its artistic potential offers results which are always more wonderful and innovative. Without abandoning tradition, whose refinement of style is always unique and unquestionable, Murano Style offers its antithesis as well: contemporary, the result of the evolution of taste and the research for new shapes carried out with an antique material which remains the absolute protagonist.

And I would prefer it to gold.
