Collection “Mediterranean Grafts”, produced by LITHEA – Patti (Messina), Italy



The Mediterranean sea has since ever been a field for convergence, crossbreedings, contaminations and hybridizations originating a stratification of techniques and competences representing an extraordinary patrimony susceptible to be continuosly re-worked out through new interpretations, grafting a contemporary mark onto tradition.
Thus, the Sicilian company LITHEA, from 17 to 22 of April 2018, will present at the next Milano’s International Furniture Fair (Italy) the collection “Mediterranean Grafts”, born from a collaboration with five designers, all having specially strong ties with this sea: Pierluigi Piu (with his two projects CòRBULAS and PIBIòNES), Philippe Nigro (IMBREX), Elena Salmistraro (CALTAGIRONE and MONREALE) and Martinelli Venezia Studio (MAIOLICHE di PIETRA), each with his own expressive language, have drawn inspiration from such cultural cross-bedding, reinterpreting, distilling and deriving from it some projects of new surfaces suitable for all kind of interiors: wall claddings and fixtures telling stories, a kind of technologically evolute wall tapestries conceived for contract as well as for houses projects. The leading role of such collection is entrusted to the precious stones and marbles LITHEA skilfully works since over fifty years, devoting talent of highly qualified craftsmen to the creation of small series of very special products.
