STONE ITALIANA

TETI for Stone Italiana, a vase that, just like the goddess Tethys from Greek mythology it’s named after, has the gift of metamorphosis: it can become a holder for objects, a source of light, a totem or an artistic monolith, depending on requirements and sizing. TETI is the encounter of two pyramids expertly interlinked by Walter De Silva’s and Mario Antonioli’s unique skill. The concept is enhanced by references to the Fibonacci sequence and the ratios of the golden rectangle, “thus confirming the existence of a relationship between macrocosm and microcosm, universe and nature …”. The two solids nest perfectly together in an unexpectedly delicate and complex geometrical equilibrium, managing to convey the ideas of both surprise and solidity.
