New and exciting collections of ceramics were born from the close collaboration between Bitossi and architect-designer Ettore Sottsass which then had a strong impact on the manufacturing activities at Montelupo Fiorentino. Since 1955 their uninterrupted relationship has led to the creation of a new expression with rare ceramics that immortalize memories of travels in India and the United States as well as particular life experiences.
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.
