About the Designers
Italy (1962 - )
An eclectic and versatile jewelry designer by trade, Emma Silvestris combines soft, feminine lines, the precision of geometry and classic elegance, as well as the use of ancient symbols, to create seemingly weightless designs. She is consistently noted for her incorporation of these characteristics, creating pieces that blend with the natural world, and have an ancient or antique quality of inspiration that is translated through modern materials and processes. The flowing and floating beauty of marine life is the inspiration for the Mediterraneo Bowl which is produced through a drawing to perforated laser cutting procedure. Its classic mirror-finished 18/10 stainless steel option is achieved through a special electrochemical process, while its Red finish features an epoxy coat over its 18/10 stainless steel form.
Born in Bergamo, Italy, Laura Polinoro graduated in Drama Art and Music Studies in Bologna. Her first job was in the field of contemporary dance as art director and costume and set designer. Later she undertook research at the Domus Academy in Milan. From 1990 to 1998 she was in charge of the Centro Studi Alessi, where she operated as meta-project designer and art director, coordinating workshops both in-house and in association with various universities and design institutes the world over. She was also involved in publishing and communications activities. Items which entered production in that period are identified with the acronym ôCSAö. Since 2004 products overseen by Ms. Polinoro have been identified with the letters "LPWK"
