BEL PAESE ARANCE PLATE

$55.00
DETAILS
A wonderful aesthetic and nostalgic journey. Bel Paese is the new and unusual story created by French designer Sam Baron. These porcelain plates are decorated with beautiful vintage illustrations inspired by old "citrus papers". These small squares of silk paper decorated with a central motif were used to pack oranges in the last century. As part of the popular cultural heritage of the 20th century, citrus papers have become a rare commodity found only on the stalls of luxury grocers and collectors! The deliciously retro imagery is totally updated with flashy colours, modern patterns and offbeat details. Simple and showy, the patterns respond to a popular, naive inspiration, made up of poetry and ingenuous symbolism, traits that are reminiscent of children's drawings. Honest, warm tones, blue and red are the natural preference. A retro pop imagery, tinged with humour, poetry and mystery...

Bitossi Home is a dynamic selection of products, a new language of sharing attentive to design and the evolution of being together. A dialogue that involves young designers and creative collaborations to give shape to projects that are never predictable and always original, such as the eclectic Tavola Scomposta. Shapes, styles, textures that contaminate each other, breaking the mould, but keeping alive the link with the past which emerges in the collections like a light retro accent. All the collections, designed to enhance contributions and experiences gained across the board, from graphics to fashion, from design to art, bring the right balance between poetry and irony to the mise en place.

Bitossi is a historic identity of Italian manufacturing, present since the second half of the nineteenth century in the Montelupo Fiorentino area, in Tuscany. The Bitossi factory, today Bitossi Ceramiche, has belonged to the family for five generations and has been located in the same location since 1921. In 2014, the company was included in the Register of Italian Historic Companies.

Bitossi production until the end of the 1940s reflected the traditional taste linked to local production, and then evolved into unique creations exported all over the world which still represent the excellence of Made in Italy today.
