Seletti are one of those design houses with an eye for the unusual. Often coming up with memorable items that take a slightly different route to artistic and ornamental beauty, the group’s latest brass collection offers a striking look that is sure to create quite the impression.
Labeled as the fingers collection, the brass effect artistic objects gain this name though the ‘finger smudge’ effect produced in its make-up.
Designed by the Italian artist and curator marcantonio, the series of gold coloured brass and glazed porcelain products offer a wonderful look into the word of modern art and craftsmanship.
The above Fingers Cake Stand is a lovely example of what the design process is aiming for. In making an everyday object, then enhancing it with a curious artist effect, the elegance and overally creativity is highlighted in the home. The finger marks that cover the surface of the stand are sure to be an eye-opener for guests and visitors, and will clearly be a conversation starter.
It doesn’t get much more everyday than a tea-break, and that’s the mixture of the real-world and the artistic that Seletti and marcantonio are getting to the heart of with the Fingers Teapot, Porcelain. Both fashionable and reliable, the brass coloured glazed porcelain teapot is sure to create lots of talk around the table.
Another essential for a tea-break is the mug. The Fingers Mug, Porcelain by Seletti offers an unforgettable look of luxurious class. With a look of original artfulness, the mug is also strong, durable and ideal for everyday use. Contrasting colour shades of stunning brass on the outer shape and handle, plus a delicate white in the interior, provide a glorious overall look.
The Fingers Sugar Pot is another addition to the collection and further proof of the success of the design adventure instigated by Seletti and marcantonio. The fashionable twist of finger marks across the glazed porcelain of the pot is well in keeping with the design brand’s original ideas of supplanting the normal and run-of-the-mill.
The everyday container of the Fingers Bowl, Porcelain is also a great everyday piece showing how creative ideas can change the view of an object into something different. The gold of the glazed porcelain on the outside highlights the interior of the cool white.
