The presence of crockery helps to create a functional domestic environment for its inhabitants; the Santoria Collection goes a level beyond the basics by infusing dishes with a symbolic sense of being "homespun." Designed by Vito Nesta, this series of practical and decorative items features a seamstress's tools on a magnified scale.

Dimpled thimbles have been blown up to become generous colorful vases and buttons have been expanded to serve as dinner plates. Giant needles and ceramic spools of thread sit alongside painted porcelain balls of yarn to become a charming series of needlecraft knickknacks. The Santoria Collection conjures nostalgia, comfort and creativity to give occupants of minimalist modern homes a sense of warmth.
