Nassa Colourful Ceramic Vases

Nassa is a vase line by Roberto Sironi showing warm colours and tactile details, inspired by sky, earth and sea. The traditional fishing tools are the base of the designer’s inspiration to conceive Nassa. Built in different sizes according to the kind of fish they wanted to catch, these traditional instruments are nowadays falling into disuse, due to modern intensive fishing techniques, but they are a historical testament of the fishermen civilization, especially Mediterranean.

Nassa is available in two sizes, it is made in ceramic and coloured with engobe; it is characterised by a nautical rope, in chromatic opposition with the vase matter. This small rope acts like a belt, dividing the matt part from the polished one, to recall tradition with a contemporary twist. Nassa is available in 5 earthy colours: Brown, Dark Pink, Mustard, Powder Pink and Sea Blue.
