ALLORO decorative bowl is set to stun. Just let it stand alone over a shelf, mantle or coffee table for an elegant, gallery-like feel.
Featuring a laurel leaf that names this piece (alloro means “laurel” in Italian), ALLORO decorative bowl links your imagination directly to the territory it is born in. Indeed, looking at these bowls you will be able to think of the colour of the Mediterranean Sea, see the Ligurian beaches full of pebbles, hear the sound of waves and feel the scent of the laurel trees growing along the coast.
Looking at this pebble-like bowl you’d never say it is light as a feather. In fact, made of lightweight special ceramic (porcelain gres), these bowls appear more real stones but their actual identity is delicate and fragile.
Alfredo Gioventù invented a special ceramic material that mimics the pebbles of Ligurian beaches. Together with Daniela Mangini, he designed and crafted this unique collection called Sassi that literally stands for “stones”. Their activity at the studio Alfredo Gioventù – Opificio ceramico, founded in 1998, where these ceramic stones are handcrafted, testifies one of the ways how to transform aesthetic features of their terra into art, design and home décor items.
