from tableware to glass, cushions and fabrics, vito nesta’s presentation at maison et objet in paris envisioned scenes that represented winter (mont blanc) and spring (animalia). interweaving the sense of time with the constant change of the natural world, the designer let exotic and wild animals free; thus, on cushions, on plates, on tablecloths and on the vases run evocatively hares, elk, foxes, while igers, pandas, koalas and zebras show themselves among a dense pattern of luxuriant forest.

previously, the grand tour collection by vito nesta had brought us to cairo, lebanon, kenya, india and brazil. this time, its real and imaginary journey, takes us to explore far away territories that pass through the observation of man, flora and fauna. immersed in wisteria branches, archeological ruins, palm groves and idea cities colored in purple tones, the traveler gets caught up, floating in a universe that is between perception and suggestion.
