ilaria innocenti has created the ‘belle’ family, a series of cake stands and containers with a varnished ash wood base and a brass-plated steel cover produced by incipit. the milan-based product and interior designer’s aim was to reinterpret the traditional elements of pastry and gelato shops, turning them into domestic objects that mix contemporary colours and cheerful shapes, with a touch of tradition added through brass. ‘belle’ is a perfect way to serve fruit, cakes and snacks on a table in a scenic and elegant way.
