On 12 October 1492, Christopher Columbus made landfall in the Americas. His landing place was an island, known by its native inhabitants as Guanahani, he named it San Salvador after Christ the Saviour. Columbus’s expeditions inaugurated a period of exploration of the New World filled with exotic sounds, bright colours and lush greenery, in contrast to sad Europe, devastated by wars and famine.
Our new collection NUEVO MUNDO is inspired by the wildlife and exuberant flowers of the New World, its inhabitants, but above all, by traditional crafts that create unique pieces, combining the Sublime and the Terrible, that rather than seeking Beauty, depict the cosmic vision of Life.
