The Ferrari branding on the Colnago CF4 isn't a mere marketing ploy. The technological development of Colnago's carbon bikes has always been done hand-in-hand with the Italian composites firm ATR. ATR also so happens to be the company that collaborates with Ferrari on all carbon -specific R&D for Michael Schumacher's Formula 1 Ferrari team. Naturally, there is extensive technological crossover there, and the close relationship spawned from this is best evidenced in the well-known photographs of Ernesto Colnago and Enzo Ferrari standing arm-in-arm in a Ferrari boardroom, as well as Colnago's presentation of a Ferrari bike to Michael Schumacher.

Produced on the island of Murano using traditional glass forging and blowing techniques, the Murano Glass Chandelier represents the grandeur of 800-year-old craftsmanship.

The translucent red glass is luminous when lit, casting a warm glow appropriate to an entryway, dining room or bedroom.
