Sculptures from Salvatori
These beautiful sculptures are the perfect way to add texture and colour in a subtle yet interesting way. Inspired by the array of different types of stone she encountered working with Salvatori, designer Elisa Ossino has drawn upon the simplicity of Morandi’s still life images and reproducing them in stunning marble. From the classic elegance of Bianco Carrara and Botticino to the dramatic intensity of Cipollino and Rosso Collemandina, this collection brings together a stunning selection of marbles used in some of Italy’s most iconic architecture.
