richard ginori’s perroquets collection evokes imagery of 18th century botanical manuscripts

 

 

 

the philosophy of richard ginori has always drawn upon refinement, expressed through a sophisticated and contemporary style. a world where everything follows a precise direction, but comes together in perfect harmony, finding in the whole its sense of belonging: the home as a stage. table sets and furnishing accessories celebrate the historic tradition of the italian porcelain manufacturer through distinct decorations and motifs.

their ‘perroquets’ collection continues in this tradition, made by recovering a craft technique of printing using film painted-china and silk looms without any contribution of digital technology. the wall plates draw influence from eighteenth-century botanical manuscripts, taken from the house’s historical archives. ink pen, film and silk frame are the method used for the development of the color composition of each parrot found on the individual plates. each film represents a hue, part of an extraodinary game of overlaps creating and completing the decoration.

the china features a positive tone of color with lightly imprinted marks. the background is colored using the craft technique of ‘punzecchio’ – coloring done with a sponged effect – rendered by airbrush. each plate has been hand decorated, recreating a particular coloration with a full taste of an authentic past. 

 

the ‘perroquets’ wall plate collection was presented in an extravagant exhibition at the richard ginori store during milan design week 2016.
