CEDIT - Elena Salmistraro
"The Chimera collection is rather like a book with four different chapters: I set out to differentiate these graphic motifs to create four totally different stories."
The Florim Group’s technological research coupled with Elena Salmistraro’s creative flair has resulted in “Chimera”, the new collection by the CEDIT – Ceramiche d’Italia (Made in Florim) brand. The designer once again confirms her talent as an artist and designer with incomparable communicative power. Large ceramic slabs are the perfect backdrop for her inspiration.
“This collection is an introspective work,” explains the designer, “focusing on my life and the way I design. Chimera is like a book with four different chapters: I set out to differentiate these graphic motifs to create four totally different stories. The collaboration with CEDIT has been very stimulating; it was a wonderful challenge that allowed us, together, to create something new, experimental and fascinating." - Elena Salmistraro
The Chimera large ceramic slabs can be enjoyed not only visually […] but also on a tactile level. Like the chimera […] with its merging of hybrid animal and vegetable shapes, the Cedit project attempts to originate a synaesthetic form of ceramics, through a three-dimensional development” - Silvana Annicchiarico
