On 7th October, the 2023 Rometti Award will be awarded to one of the finalists in an exclusive ceremony.
-“We don’t only design objects, we design moments.- With these words, fashion icon Kenzo Takada presents the lifestyle interior project K 三founded with Jonathan Bouchet Manheim, Engelbert Honorat and Wanda Jelmini. Divided into three moods touching different elements of decoration, K 三 has created with Rometti ceramic pieces that represent a colourful ode to life.
The iconic Commutatore, on display at the exhibition, reveals an alternative way of experiencing urban space, looking at the world from an atypical perspective. Ugo La Pietra loves to explore reality by unhinging its values and approved spaces. Architect, designer, artist, director, editor and teacher he doesn’t like the division between disciplines but appreciates craftsmanship and local traditions and particularly identifies ceramic as a ductile and stimulating material, that blends art and technique. Above all, he links creation to a specific place, where you “ look for the form that comes from our experiences instead of from imposed patterns”.
With a long and fruitful collaboration of over 20 years, Rometti has entrusted prototypes, quality control and the throwing of vases for their most important collaborations, and now Bernardo Temperoni has received the coveted MAM recognition.
2020 brings a new collection by Chantal Thomass for Rometti, presented during the Parisian Design Week, in the splendid home of the French stylist and designer. One of the most acclaimed events by the Parisian press, who loved the renewed collaboration and the fusion of the designer’s femininity and Rometti’s know-how.
A union thanks to the extraordinary treasures that are found where Rometti has its foundations. The collaboration with Fresh, arose spontaneously and naturally. The material unites, binds, and transforms itself into different beauty tools, sharing the same DNA; the clay becomes an excellent cosmetic product for Fresh, and a decorative piece of art for Rometti.
The collaboration with Roche-Bobois was born in 2012, with the presentation of the Waterline and Radian coffee tables by Cédric Ragot, a success that is still one of the company’s best-sellers today. The following year, for the fifteenth anniversary of the death of Jean Cocteau, Rometti produced a set of plates and vases using his iconic illustrative technique. Given the extraordinary success, the collaboration was consolidated further in 2016 with the collection by Kenzo Takada for Roche-Bobois.
