I just stumbled on these gorgeous Ape ceramics by Italian product designer and artist, Elena Salmistraro. The Milan based who graduated from Polytechnic University of Milan in 2008, founded her own studio together with architect Angelo Stoli in 2009, where she has been working on architectural and design projects ever since.
Her creations are the result of an art – design mix; utmost care for details, painstaking search for shapes’ harmony and poetic style characterize her projects. One of her work’s priorities is the search for objects’ expressive language, which may fascinate people by evoking emotions.
She works as a product designer and artist/illustrator for various creative industry’s leading companies, including Alessi, Bosa, Seletti, De Castelli, B-Line, Bitossi Home, Yoox, NasonMoretti, Massimo Lunardon, Okinawa, Texturae, Stone Italiana, Effecte, MyHomeCollection, Durame. Besides, she collaborates with prestigious Art and Design Galleries, such as Camp Design Gallery and DamArte.
