Always on the lookout for exquisite pieces to have in our home, DECO recently came across this stunning dressing table by Cristina Celestino for Attico. With its contrasting textures and on-trend copper touches, it’s quickly risen to the top of our wishlist.
For Italian design studio Attico, as part of their Ecstasy Project, Pordenone-born designer Cristina has translated the project’s concept into an ornate dressing table with a basin and pitcher that can be interpreted on many levels.
The Ecstasy project is an elegant study on the symbolism of food – pure in form, full of value and meaning and inspired by the Catholic eucharistic host. The resulting concept is largely stripped of its religious value and used as texture or employed in an oversized format adorned with digital print.
With Cristina’s design, the traditional idea of a romantic dressing table that we all know and love has been purified, enlarged and transformed into an “aesthetic altar”. The pure white scale textured material actually represents the host’s repeated form. The idea was to create in a dressing table a very intimate space for hedonistic enjoyment.
Cristina Celestino graduated in Architecture in 2005 at the IUAV in Venice under Architect Massimo Carmassi, starting immediately to work in his studio based in Florence and, since 2009, has been working at the Sawaya & Moroni design, architectural office based in Milan.
We can’t wait to see what’s next.
