Porcelain crafted in Manifattura Ginori – Italy



Discover the collections by Constance Guisset

"Creating Ether for Ginori was like envisioning the setting for a ballet. Ether is the scenography I imagined for the pieces in the Aria collection. The movement of the graphics seems to evaporate into an intertwining of light and shadow that renders the dishes a frame on which the chefs can play." Constance Guisset

These are the words of Costance Guisset, the French designer of the weightless and lyrical Ether décor inspired by the shapes of our Aria collection. Ether is a hazy space that follows the movements of a body in motion to swirl back into soft, supple, nearly impalpable whorls of air. Just as if it were the setting of a ballet. A dark color, an interplay of empty and full, lights and shadows. Ether is a table service of pure design perfectly suited to host unusual foods and gourmet creations, wreathing them in its own aura of a warm and delicate ashen mystery.
