Times change, but not the refinement of certain products: fine porcelain and crystal appear in the tableware and home decoration keeping an elegant and refined allure that persists through the centuries. Richard Ginori has combined the ancient techniques of manufacturing with a stylistic reinterpretation of the classic canons to create the new collections presented at Maison & Objet.
The glorious past and the outstanding present of the Maison combine together to create a line of articles in fine porcelain. Babele, the name of the collection, includes 65 items including dishes of all types, bowls, teapots and vases. Richard Ginori reinterprets the perfect mise en place, making it more contemporary.
The Babele collection features an assortment of porcelain made in 4 different shapes in shades of blue and red; the iconic Antico Doccia and Museo, the elegant Duchessa and the shape Venezia inspired by some Gariboldi paints.
The Giardino dei Semplici candles are inspired by the vases that the Manifattura created between the end of the XVIII century and the beginning of the XIX century, highlighting once again the strong link between the past, present and future that characterizes the brand. The collection adds two new fragrances, Lily of the Valley and Jasmine. Two new porcelain candle holders with lid, are characterized by the introduction of two new shades, green and blue.
To complete the mise en place, here is the extraordinary Cristalleria, crafted through long-tradition techniques of the processing of this material. Richard Ginori offers a collection of vases and centerpieces, and four different collections of cups, glasses and pitchers: Granduca, Marchese, Baronetto and Medici.
The fine Zucca collection distinguishes itself by its unique style, crafted with the technique of blowing glass on the mold – called stampo a righino. The collection is inspired by one of 16 vases designed by architect and designer Giovanni Gariboldi and made by Manifattura Richard Ginori for the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1937.
