MEMORABILIA MVSEVM: The iconic nature of classical sculpture enters the home with Memorabilia Mvsevm, a project conceived by Marcantonio for Seletti. Memorabilia Mvsevm consists of nine reproductions in fine porcelain of parts of the human body inspired by the works of the greatest Italian sculptors: Michelangelo, Bernini and Canova. They are architectural sculptural finds that pay homage to the the most classical canons of beauty. An eye, a male and a female hand, a mouth, a nose, an ear, a male and a female foot, a penis: objects to collect that seem to come from a glorious past.
FINGERS: an eclectic and sophisticated collection that evokes ancient craftsmanship: As the name suggests, in fact, the Fingers brass objects seem to have been shaped by hand and finished off with a texture containing fingerprints. The materiality of metal blends with archetypal, almost ancestral, forms, renewing its simplicity and transforming it into objects for the home of the third millennium.
Together with the first objects in the collection (lamps, cutlery, plates, nutcrackers, candlesticks and elegant but anachronistic little bell), new products designed for the tabletop are previewed in Paris, some of which make use of brass combined with porcelain: coffee cups, a tea set, a bowl, a tray, a splashback, a mug, a jug, a jar and a dish.
