When thinking about artistic themes, what often comes up is the still life and Antonio Aricò’s latest collection deals with that timeless idea. Designed for Seletti, Still Alive was inspired by those inanimate objects and natural shapes that painters put together as subject matter.


The end results are a series of elements that you can arrange and combine into your own still life, each that you can use and play with. The user is invited to explore the objects creatively, becoming part of your daily routine.


The set includes a tall wooden pitcher, a wooden vase, a cup made of brass, a wooden pencil box, a porcelain bottle, a wooden pyramid-shaped box, and a magnifying glass sphere. Each piece sits into its own carved-out place on the wooden base when you’re done playing. The objects not only look good, they’re functional.
