DIOGENÈA – A TALE OF BOWL
Designed for ZPSTUDIOTOOLS Limited editions
Diogenèa – A tale of bowls is a reflection on the archetypal forms related to food, and a tribute to the essence of an object – the bowl. The collection exploits different materials and processes as applied to an identical mold (from marble to crochet, from marsh grass to charred wood, from gold-leaf to terracotta from Impruneta…). Each one of these materials carries a tale of traditional techniques and impressive manufactures.
Diogenèa is then a tale on the simplicity of everyday objects, and a recognition of materials and workmanship that are regional – and in some cases even close to disappearing.
