Already the shape of this serving plate makes it special. Instead of a conventional round shape, in fact, OTTAGONO has eight sides due to its antique origins. Inspired by the best traditions of slate artisans of Genoa region, this plate perfectly represents Piatto d’Ardesia Genovesato, i.e. a typical Slate Genovese Plate.
This wonderful piece develops the added value of such a metamorphic natural material like slate, but not only. It also features a pure design, with geometric spiral lines traced over the dark matte surface, pleasing to the eye and the touch. Its attractive charcoal colour looks unique and stylish. Rich and elegant, the natural raw stone finish blends impeccably with today’s materials and colours. This dark matte serving plate will work perfectly with any of your fragile-look porcelain or glass tableware sets, as well as steel cutlery, thus creating a stunning high contrast effect.
The craftsmen of the valley Fontanabuona, a lovely area situated in the province of Genoa and famous for its rich slate quarries, can boast of the region’s long traditions in extraction and processing of this valuable material. Their skilful hands perform any kind of working with precision, care and real craftsmanship quality, creating delightful pieces of tableware and home décor from this famous black stone of Liguria.
