RENÈ By Salvatori
Piero Lissoni debuts his Lost Stones collection, a new series of tables fabricated from heritage stone discovered in Salvatori’s archives. The tables employ the Japanese technique of kintsugi, a method of repairing shattered ceramics with delicate seams of gold: each table is a singularly unique object, its natural pattern, like a bolt of lightning, impossible to replicate. “The Lost Stones Collection gives new life to fragments of precious stone, joining them by following the randomness of its shatter”, explains Lissoni of the project. “The golden seams along the profiles of each cut transform the imperfect form into a perfect state.” Lissoni also expands his Home Collection: trays, vases and containers blend Salvatori’s natural stone with glass, wood and metal. The collection includes Salvatori’s first home fragrance, an intense scent with notes of cedar wood and Jasmine which evokes the citrus groves and sun-drenched shores of Sicily, home to Pietra d’Avola, its namesake limestone.
