Today Rocco Borghese continues the family tradition , designing individual artistic and contemporary pieces that are unique for each client. Each piece is shipped with a signed certificate of authenticity for insurance and valuation purposes. Rocco Borghese combines an instinctive Italian understanding of style and design with the skill and passion of an artisan. Born in Southern Italy, Rocco began his career working with his glass sculptor father in their family-run studio and workshop. ‘The Borghese furnace”, as it was known, became synonymous in the local region and amongst its customers for its excellent and individual glass work. The family had already established a foothold in the UK by this time and Rocco was attending school both in Italy and the UK from an early age. In his twenties Rocco with his ambition and love for glass, decided to start his own glass blowing business, Rocco resided in London to study architecture with interior design. Following his graduation Rocco began his first lighting business, creating custom made lights using neon. After many years he began working exclusively in Murano glass, moving away from more commercial projects in favour of developing his lights as art pieces. Rocco eventually opened Borghese Luce Arte in Crouch End, with another shop in London’s affluent Kings Road in Chelsea equipped with workshops to create his unique art-light pieces. The main larger pieces are still created in northern Italy, Venezia in Mestre in his family’s foundary as they have since 1860. Rocco’s work has established a growing following amongst interior designers and his client base includes many well-known names. His designs have been featured on Channel 4’s ‘Grand Designs’ and are sold through Selfridges, Harrods and a number of boutiques in London’s Mayfair.
