An intense January for Richard Ginori, which presented its new collections for 2020 in Milan and Paris. On 23 January at the Richard Ginori boutique, Piazza San Marco 3, the firm unveiled Éther, the collection created by the French designer Constance Guisset.
In coordination with Maison&Objet, visitors to the concept store in Paris Leclaireur were able to discover Totem and Volière in an almost meditative setting, selected by the Florentine maison for Cosmogony and inspired by four natural elements: Water, Earth, Fire and Air.
A natural pathway accompanied by an evocative soundtrack and punctuated by installations composed of metal wheels that supported the plates: the display setting was designed with the art direction of EligoStudio. Éther is introduced directly by French designer Constance Guisset: “To create Éther for Richard Ginori has been like creating the set for a ballet. It is the set I have imagined for the pieces of the Aria collection. The movement of the graphic design seems to evaporate in a weave of lights and shadows that makes the plates into a frame on which chefs can act creatively.” The production stands out for a ‘breath on the ashes’ that gives the surface of the plate movement and lightness.
A Persian cat is the protagonist of the Totem collection, ready for personalization. The elegant feline links back to a decorative tradition from the 1700s, and asserts its independence amidst ottomans and cushions. Made in pure porcelain, it becomes unique thanks to lively colors and combinations inspired by the world of nature.
Volière, finally, features precious decoration based on drawings contained in refined 19th-century publications on botany, reproducing 12 different graphic subjects. Birds and hummingbirds on festoons, framed by floral motifs delicately underscored by pure gold borders, for one of the most refined collections by Richard Ginori.
