Concept

Made from handcrafted terracotta from storied Italian artisan producer Fornace Curti, a family-run manufacture of cotto lombardo with origins dating back to the 15th century, the elementary shapes reimagine traditional earthenware forms and create a harmonious expression that elegantly balances freedom with restraint.

“I wanted to reaffirm the value of terracotta. Design Editions offers an opportunity to explore the nature of materials in a new context. I selected terracotta for its warmth and the way it beautifully contrasts with the industrially produced aluminum frame.” - Omi Tahara
