If I might have the un-pleasure and break my arm, take on wood, I would definitely wear a Hermès scarf as a Mitella (do you say Mitella even?) as Grace Kelly.

Salto Vases

Ceramic vases from the master of organic and biomorphic silhouettes with rich glazes: Axel Salto. The Danish artist is more up-to-date than ever before and Salto’s objects are sold for tremendous prices at auction houses worldwide – prices which emblemize his unique, modern and progressive aesthetic.

Guido Gambone

I am very fond of Guido Gambone’s ceramic table lamps, in particular the larger ones. Mr Gambone was one of the most influential Italian ceramic artist in the mid 20th century and is well-known for his eclectic Italian art pottery.

The Eye Chair

A pair of gorgeous dining chairs in model “Eye chair”, designed in 1961 by Ejvind A. Johansson and produced by Gern Møbelfabrik, Denmark. Teak frame with curved eye shaped back, seats upholstered in Kvadrat “Hallingdal” wool.

Fondazione Querini Stampalia

Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Architecture by Carlo Scarpa-4

The Italian architect Carlo Scarpa is one of the most enigmatic architects of all time. Scarpa is best known for his instinctive approach to materials, combining time-honored crafts with modern manufacturing processes. He was mainly influenced by the materials, landscape, and the history of Venetian culture, and Japan. Above and underneath are details from the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, a Venetian Palace which Scarpa renovated in 1963.
