Pyxis & Capua by Ivan Colominas
“PYXIS” and “CAPUA” want to transmit my Mediterranean Heritage: the pause to enjoy small pleasures, the handicraft tradition, etc… and marble was the perfect material to accomplish it. Both collections are completely made in Italy.
PYXIS Client: MMairo (Italy) Year_2018 A reﬁned collection articulated through cylinders that vary only in height and doesn’t ignore that the best ally in the thorough organization of a space is the container, which thanks to minute details, becomes increasingly ours. The container cap is ergonomically studied in order to invite you to open it without being afraid of possible marble surface damages. Material: Nero Marquina & Bianco Michelangelo marble Dimensions: Pyxis “S” – 12,6 x 11 cm, Pyxis “M” – 12,6 x 14,5 cm , Pyxis “L” – 12,6 x 19 cm
CAPUA Client: MMairo (Italy) Year: 2019 A collection inspired by the ancient pottery traditions of the Campania region (Southern Italy). The veins of the Black Marquina marble look skyward, toward the crater deﬁned by round shapes and sinuous proﬁles. I love the research that is necessary to create subtle visual connections between the present and diﬀerent moments of our history, my idea is to give to the vase’s owner at least a second of pause where unconsciously travels to a place that is far away from cell phones, internet and our frenetic way of life. Material: Nero Marquina marble Dimensions: 32 x 19 cm (L), 23.5 x 19 cm (S)
