The brand: Bitossi Ceramiche, the renowned tuscan manufacturers, has been producing mid-century ceramics of the highest quality for over half a century. Since 2014 it has been included in the prestigious list of historical Italian manufactures. Tradition and innovation fuse together to create exquisite pieces that are innovative and at the same time are expression of traditional Tuscan craftsmanship. Since the 1950’s, Bitossi has collaborated with some of the most respected architects, designers and artists such as Dimorestudio, Marco Zanini, Arik Levy, George J. Sowden, Fabio Novembre, Karim Rashid, Bethan Laura Wood, Benjamin Huber and Max Lamb who have contributed to create pieces of extraordinary pathos and beauty.
The company’s assets are conserved at the Bitossi Industrial Archive which protects the historical heritage of the ceramic know-how and its manufacturing. The Fifties and Sixties collections presented by Bitossi refer to the original items preserved in the Historical Archive; the iconic models of Aldo Londi are a significant part of it, still revealing in the present day great creativity and state-of-the-art design. As with all the ceramic pieces part of the Historical Archive, each piece is handcrafted and faithfully reproduces the original in both shape and colour.
