07 Oct Ginori x David Gil in Galerie Magazine
Last fall, Ginori 1735 introduced the first iteration of their “Reborn Project,” whereby the age-old Italian porcelain atelier gave nine creatives a go at designing tableware from existing blanks that were deemed imperfect. Jacques Grange and Paloma Picasso were two of the eight whose visions were hand-painted by Ginori’s master artisans, presenting unique tableware sets shown at Galerie du Passage. Each set was signed by the designer and priced at 50,000 euros; 80 percent sold during the first 24 hours. The second iteration featured four designers, including Flavie Audi and Martino Gamper, and debuted during Milan Design Week at Nilufar Gallery, while the third and latest installation is now on view at David Gill in London. As before, this chapter was conceived and curated by Frédéric Chambre, former Associate Vice President of Pierre Bergé & Associés, where he helped coordinate the 2009 sale of some of the Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé collection at Christie’s, and now CEO of Paris auction house Piasa. This latest installation of tableware features works by Michele Oka Doner, Mattia Bonetti, Sebastian Brajkovic, Barnaby Barford, Lena Peters, Sebastian Errazuriz, David Gill, and Francis Sultana.
