The Hybrid collection from the Italian company Seletti features strikingly beautiful plates, bowls, teacups and saucers that juxtapose traditional Eastern and Western aesthetics. They are quirky and colorful. Modern ceramics fuse is an amalgamation of two contrasting styles. The unexpected pairings are sure to start conversations at any dinner party.
MODERN CERAMICS FUSE
Hybrid designed by CTRLZAK, a studio founded by artists and designers Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos. Each creation inspired by the duo’s diverse experiences around the world and their rich cultural backgrounds. As shared on their website, “The collection looks at the present while reflecting on the irony of history.” They continue, “The pieces in the collection divided into east and west with a colored line. It marks the boundary between the two styles and, paradoxically, strengthening at the same time.”
The designs originated back in 2011 when Seletti and CTRLZAK presented the first pieces of the collection. Over the past six years, Hybrid met with a lot of success and high demand. The designs have continued to grow. In fact, CTRLZAK is introducing a series of rugs into the collection. The rugs debuted in this year’s Maison et Object in Paris. It is an international trade fair dedicated to lifestyle fashions and trends.
