A new accessories capsule is created as a corollary to the Anniversary collection, on the occasion of the 15 years of the Visionnaire brand, the result of an original narrative approach that translates into an expressive Art Design vocabulary. The objects in this range, sculptural and functional at the same time, are made of ceramics, stone, brass and Murano glass, taking on the forms of an extroverted family of artefact designed by some of the most interesting names on the international scene of new creative talent.
ORIENTE design by Ivan Baj-vases: Three sculptural objects with a focus on Japanese forms. Rounded shapes rendered immobile by matte black. Handcrafted, blown and velvet-coated entirely by hand.
STRATIGRAFICA plates design by Gumdesign; A collection of plates/trays in fine marble, entirely made; by hand by master craftsmen and stonecutters, in keeping with an ancient tradition. Between function and emotion, stone returns as mountain. The series of plates, besides use for precious table settings, can be displayed in its two compositions: the first is “open,” the second “closed,” both forcefully sculptural, ready to stand out as an emotional object. All the parts are made by hand with a lathe, and finished by skilled artisans in Salomè marble.
MECCANISMI boxes design by Gumdesign; The interlocking of the parts represents the limit between inside and outside, closed and open, private and public. The mechanical gesture of opening and closing allows or forbids access to a place, a content, to be protected and concealed. A collection of storage elements composed of parts in Jerissa stone and natural acid-etched metal. The Jerissa stone is worked with high-precision CNC milling; the metal is turned and welded by hand, and then etched with an artisanal approach.
CASALE trays design by Fausto Salvi; The volume that contains the houses, joined to the zigzag top, suggests the image of a rural landscape in which we can glimpse the furrows of tilled land and the dwellings of the farmers. The gold finish of the top underscores the value of the land, of cultivated fields. Each object is made by assembling three parts: two in glazed ceramic, with gold, third fired and a support in painted waxed plywood. Considering the completely handmade approach used in every phase of the production, without multiple reproduction methods, every piece has slight differences in terms of measurements and appearance. Each item should be considered a “one-of-a-kind” creation.
ZIGZAG trays design by Fausto Salvi; Through the stacking of the oval levels featuring straight lines, the set of three serving stands has an optical effect. The name ZIGZAG refers to the design of the crosssection of each level. Each stand is made by assembling a slab of clay, obtained by pressing in a wooden mold, and a turned base finished by hand with two-tone sprayed glaze. Considering the completely handmade approach used in every phase of the production, without multiple reproduction methods, every piece has slight differences in terms of measurements and appearance. Each item should be considered a “one-of-a-kind” creation.
SWING vases design Fausto Salvi; The name SWING suggests the movement of a couple dancing to swing music, with the typical positions and movements. The ceramic vases are made in three parts, turned at the wheel and then assembled, refined with twotone sprayed glaze. Considering the completely handmade approach used in every phase of the production, without multiple reproduction methods, every piece has slight differences in terms of measurements and appearance. Each item should be considered a “one-of-a-kind” creation.
E Q U I L I B R I vases design by Zanellato/Bortotto; Sculptural vases and trays composed of three parts with different forms and colors, crafted by hand in Murano glass.
CORALS vases design by Olivia Walker; Olivia’s disciplined and meditative approach to making sees her create complex surfaces that reference natural forms such as corals and the buds of flowers. She builds up layers of porcelain sequentially and methodically, to create pieces that speak of both fragility and growth, and through the firing process Olivia capture this fragility in ceramic form. These pieces have been thrown on the potters wheel in the traditional way, before being built upon with with individually made porcelain pieces and brass shards. They are made in a white porcelain from Limoges, France, or a black Spanish porcelain, and fired to 1260 degrees Celsius.
