This piece recovers and assumes the "Pop" language, honouring a period (the 50´s and 60´s) and two of their most important protagonists in design: Eero Aarnio and Eero Saarinen.
With this developed and optimised solution for ceramics, raw material usually not used in this typology of objects, there's a doubt about the role that this solution can assume in the way of inhabiting, emancipating it from its usual place at table or of its static existence in the bathroom, proposing new relationships between a traditional material and rhythms of contemporary life.
