Frutteti Gherardo Frassa, Gianluca Bianchi / 2014-2017

Turning an object of common use into a sophisticated design object is a dear concept to Opinion Ciatti, and FruttetiBohemian crystal bowls where series of engraved metal decorations lie – perfectly embodies this mission by succeeding in transforming a common fruit basket into something special.

Free citations about seasons for the three subjects of a line full of strong symbolic meanings and evocative features, available in polished stainless steel or brass finish: fairy dragonflies, exquisite leaves or delicate butterflies.

The dragonflies of Libertà by Gherardo Frassa smell like summer. Gentle and little animals, everlasting archetype of freedom, who instead of flying undisturbed above the wheat fields burned under the August sun, decide to stop in our homes.

They clearly remind to autumn the tiny leaves which stand on Come d'autunno a New York, giving our tables the same romanticism as the ones falling during autumn in New York's parks.

The ladies of Madama.B – the last subject of the line born in 2017 from the art of Gianluca Bianchi – are elegant as spring can be. Large and small butterflies which land on the bowls as soft as they do when in spring they flutter from flower to flower.

Frutteti is a collection which aims to combine emotions and functionality, becoming perfect "companions of life”.

" How to applied art to the fruit, how  to make special an object of common use. "
