Still life tableware collection
The re-design of these much beloved pieces, a glass and a carafe found in old Italian popular “osteria”, is obtain-ed by mixing solid colored porcelain and finishing it (internally only) with transparent glaze. A tribute to the (Italian) folk tradition, to the ritual of the “banquet” and to the design of everyday life, where the protagonist is the raw material and the tactile experience of the porcelain in sight. A vindication – and at the same time a provocation – to reevaluate the social role of supper and conviviality in contemporary society.
