Diamant by www.sdw.it
Diamant (Diamond), designed by Fernando Longo and Simone Pallotto, pays homage to the wonderful bell tower of S. Maria della Neve of Acaya, old medieval burg located few Km. South-East from Lecce. The bowl, made of ceramic, has its shape originated from the singular diamonds in bass relief of the façade of the bell tower. The design process was born as a deconstruction of the local architecture elements, with the aim of making a design object with a strong identity and cultural value.
