OMAGGIO A MORANDI

Omaggio a Morandi

Designed by Elisa Ossino

Inspired by the array of different types of stone she encountered working with Salvatori, designer Elisa Ossino has drawn upon the simplicity of form of Morandi’s still life images, reproducing them in stunning marble.

From the classic elegance of Bianco Carrara and Botticino to the dramatic intensity of Cipollino and Rosso Collemandina, the collection brings together examples of marbles used in some of Italy’s most iconic architecture.

EXAMPLE

There is poetry in Giorgio Morandi’s still lifes. Indistinct and expressive, depicting utilitarian objects – glass bottles, porcelain jugs, pots and cups – the paintings prize atmosphere and impression over the painstaking intricacy that popularised still lifes in the 19th and 20th centuries.
