FUORISALONE 2014 | ODYSSEY COLLECTION
SCENE MEDITERRANEE features, with Made a Mano, Odyssey, a series of decorative tiles in enameled lava stone, inspired by the poem of Homer.
“Rosario Parrinello and us had the idea to stage the epic journey of Odysseus through the Mare Nostrum and give life to its characters. They are symbolized with signs and graphics clearly referring to the Hellenic culture and the ancient Mediterranean people. The main effort was to go beyond the lava surface and find the right technical and chromatic solutions, capable to blend the material support with the bright enamel cover. ”
The nine tiles of the series are all handmade: Ulysses, Penelope, Argo, Calypso, Circe, Aeolus, Nausicaa, Polyphemus, the Sirens.
