John Pawson in collaboration with Salvatori, have created a family of vessels and utensils for the home whose powerful affinities include rigorous simplicity of form, materiality and function. Each of the objects comprising the Ellipse Collection is fabricated from a single seamless piece of Bianco Carrara marble. Circular in plan, the pieces share details of geometry and proportion, with variation in the character of the internal curve determined by embedded rituals of use. Contrasting polished and sandblasted surfaces create subtle differentiation between flat and contoured surfaces, for the eye and for the hand.
