09 Nov Memories of the Sea with Cristina Celestino’s Latest Tile Collection
From design star Cristina Celestino in collaboration with Ceramiche Giovanni De Maio comes Abaco Celeste, an atmospheric collection of glazed floor and wall tiles based on memories of summers sul mare, or on the sea. The Mediterranean is all over the five SKUs in the collection, from the tidal patterns to the terracotta and azure hues. Thalassa is decorated with seashells and fossils on a rippled blue ground. Amalfi gardens and Hellenistic motifs inspired the decorative borders that edge monotone Chloris. Helios looks just like wet sand ribbed by an ebbing tide, while the almost op art look of the spiraling blooms of Graphè evokes perpetual movement. Finally, Peplo’s clean stripes laced by a counter-directional ribbon border pairs with all offerings.
Cristina Celestino established her studio in Milan in 2013. After graduating in 2005 from the IUAV School of Architecture in Venice, she worked with various design studios, focusing on interior architecture and design. In 2011 she created her own design brand, Attico Design. The activities of Cristina Celestino and her studio range from residential, hospitality and commercial projects to creative direction and product design.
