Concreto Collection


Concreto Collection for Lea Ceramiche 2018

Stoneware is the most advanced and sustainable building material of our time, a real tabula rasa to use to tell the stories of materials. You can’t leave out a chapter dedicated to cement. To narrate it, we tried to replicate the organic element in the mixture, the original material, water with its undulating movements (Tide), the absence of water (Dry), the stories of the creatures living in the water (Reef and Foam) and the effect gravity has on water (Drops). The result is a very physical, organic collection, able to adapt to any setting. I grew up in one of those mythical New York lofts, an open space with few quite similar-looking walls. In this setting cement, the material, and the impact of cement, is fundamental. In order to give this kind of interpretive freedom to spaces, we arrived at this material from Lea. Concreto is a collection designed for those who do not want barriers, for those who take on life without breaks and interruptions, for those who do not want to live in a cage.
