A growth based on innovation and research

Gianluca Orazio, founder of Forme d’Acqua, starts his professional path as an artisan, taking care of green areas and decorative gardens, with the realization of small water spaces.

In 2005 he is involved in a experimental project that combines decorative gardens, water and glass; in that occasion he meets architect and designer Simona M. Favrin, one of the project creators.

Experimentation and desire for innovation are the connection elements between them, joined by a common language.

Thus a collaboration which was radically going to change the company, began, bringing it closer to planning, design and experimentation.

Taking care of green areas comes closer to Landscape Design, and small water spaces are replaced by the planning and realization of fountains and water games.

Simona’s passion for artistic glass combines with Gianluca’s passion for water. The results are surprising and innovative: the first artistic fountains are created. There the combination of water and glass is declined in design proposals and unique and original creations.

The brand Forme d’Acqua was founded, to better express this new concept of “shaping water”.

Since the beginning innovation is one of the key element of the brand.

In 2011, with a longing for experimentation, they gave life to an ambitious work: “The Lagoon Monster”, an emotional fountain with a technological heart, where art design and technology meet.

It has been created by the best professionalism of the Venetian territory, those who later became partner of Forme d’Acqua, and it joins together the beauty of artistic glass to sound, lights and water, all governed by an innovative home automation system.

It was the beginning of a fascinating adventure; an exhibition journey took “The Lagoon Monster” in some of the main Italian exhibition venues, until it reached the Basilica Cistern in Istanbul, becoming the only artwork ever exhibited in its historical waters.

This is how the doors to East were opened, where Forme d’Acqua has turned its projects and energies for the last few years, thanks to the experience gained in Italy and the professionalism and collaborations consolidated over the years.

Since 2014 important works have been realised in Iraqi Kurdistan, and later in other Middle Eastern countries like Iran; countries that  appreciate Italian design and the great artisanal and technical abilities.

In order to satisfy the demands of foreign markets, the most recent adventure taken by Forme d’Acqua was conceived: the creation of an innovative collection of indoor fountains, a luxury product that combines mastery in the use of precious materials to the most advanced home automation, for an interactive, sustainable and design fountain able to interact and create emotions.

In this long path of growth, the founding values of our Brand, innovation and research, have remained the same, but have also been enriched by awareness and daily commitment for the planning and construction of sustainable fountains, which last over time.


We fell in love with this job: realizing unique artworks, able to touch the public. This give us the chance to grow up together is this eternal pursuit of beauty. If you like beautiful and well done design objects and want to explore the potentiality of water features, come to see us.
