Ambrosiana is a project inspired by the city of Milan. A collaboration between three designers with an emotional connection to the city, Cristina Celestino, Serena Confalonieri, Elena Salmistraro wanted to create a tribute collection to their beloved city.
Many different processes were used to create Ambrosiana. From the use of traditional materials to a distortion of common shapes through new functional assignments, the collection has many different aesthetic languages.
Cattedrale is made of five concentric containers with different decorative textures, and stacked to create a vibrant visual effect.
Meneghine pays homage to Milano and the Duomo city cathedral that’s made of a white and dusty pink stone.
Obei Obei is a set of wall mirrors, inspired by the windows of iconic Milanese buildings.
Santissimi is a collection of three trays made of iron and stained glass, replicating a traditional technique used to create cathedral windows.
Vedovelle mimics the typical dark green public fountain found in Milan. It was redesigned, scaled, made of borosilicate glass and turned into 1 L bottles.
Velasca consists of 3 glasses made of mouth-blown borosilicate glass and was inspired by towers veiled in mist.
Created in collaboration with Spazio 900, Ambrosiana is a culmination of different, unique pieces made by signature Milan designers.
