Seletti is a story of vision and evolution. Established in 1964, in Cicognara, Mantova. “Today, Seletti is working with young Italian and international designers, who are quickly making their own mark, the desire is to create a group that can grow and evolve together, a challenge, that, so far, is producing great results.”I am also working with people outside of the design world, artists, visionaries with whom I would like to break down some barriers. My unconventional non-academic education naturally leads me to “crossover”, a journey towards the idea of a “new beauty”. For us, this is (r)evolution.”
The Kintsugi line, designed by Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba for Seletti, draws inspiration from the Kintsugi technique that originated in Japan and involves the use of precious metals such as 24-karat gold, to repair porcelain vessels. The Kintsugi technique of porcelain repair, comes from the philosophy of wanting to transform and restore life to a broken or cracked object and therefore no longer usable, making it even more valuable than before repair. A transformation that in addition to the value of the object itself, gives it a new appearance and allows it to be used again. Seletti with the Kintsugi porcelain line dedicates an entire collection to decorate the table, Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba proposes 6 plates, 3 bowls, 3 mugs and 3 teacups with saucer, all elements enriched with 24 carat gold.
