Variations on the theme of porcelain.
Industreal asked four designers, De Lucchi, Mendini, Sottsass and Sowden, each using his own sensitivity, to create variations on the theme of the sublime art of porcelain.
Burano, Faccette, Orbita and Evesham are added to the Industreal catalogue to emphasize how creativity is a poetical process which plays with shapes and materials, and that designers are designers because their inspiration for research interacts with curiosity, the love of shape and the desire to give an aesthetic context to objects that surround us.
