Vessels conceived taking inspiration from the tubular elements of the Centre Pompidou architecture in Paris, designed by Renzo Piano.

From the original pieces of Nuoveforme archive designed in the early 70's by Alvino Bagni, reinterpreted in collaboration with Area. The unique metallic finish of these pieces is achieved by applying a special glaze containing platinum and a three firing process, instead of the usual two.

The history of Nuoveforme is intrinsically linked to the history of its founder, Alvino Bagni.

Born in a small village near Florence, he showed great aptitude for ceramics from an early age. He began his training first with the artist Torello Santini and then in the workshop of Arnaldo Pugi, who helped him finance his first workshop.

Ceramiche Bagni heavily relied on the work of family members. But over time, thanks to Bagni's artistic soul, which led him to take important orders throughout the 1950s and 60s, the growth of the company led him to change premises and surround himself with highly specialized artists, finding a perfect balance between materials, technique, functionality, aesthetics and experimentation, but never ceasing to actively participate in the creation of objects.

After a three-year interregnum, Alvino Bagni returns to work in 1993, opening his old premises as Nuoveforme, continuing to create new pieces until his retirement in 2001. Today, by the hand of Gianfranco Ghiretti and Alvino Bagni's granddaughter, Maria Chiara Ghiretti, Nuoveforme, as well as continuing to innovate, frequently consults its private archive of Bagni's designs for inspiration, producing entirely handmade ceramics for for major design companies and luxury brands across the world.
