Bizarre ceramics by Sam Baron for Sisley
Fabrica, the Benetton group’s communication research center, will participate in ExperimentaDesign, the international Biennale of design creativity and culture to be held in Lisbon from September 10th to November 11th with Bizarre, a collection of ceramics designed by Sam Baron/Fabrica for Sisley and Take Your Time, an exhibition at the space Fabrica Features Lisboa.
The Sisley store in Chiado will feature a collection of ceramics, especially created by Sam Baron for Sisley, re-inventing one of the best Portuguese traditions through a contemporary vision of the old “savoir-faire”. The collection assembles a futuristic approach of souvenirs inherited from the past, merging details of a long tradition of nature-inspired shapes with classic vases and tableware pieces. Consisting of five limited-production objects, which will be sold in the Sisley store during the days of Experimenta Design, the Bizarre collection is a range of vases and tableware in classic shapes with industrial-production ceramic figurines used as three-dimensional decorative details. A way of “populating” our home with strange, hybrid creatures: from a vase which hosts a family of swans or with indiscreet rabbit ears that create floral motifs, to the plate that seems to have a fish swimming in it, or the salt and pepper set where a bee has settled gently. The ceramics are made by hand and produced by Olfaire, in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal.
