Description:

In the early 80s Mario Lispi organized an exhibition dedicated to the ceramics art and suggested to his friend Takahama to design a work.
Although the Japanese architect had used this type of material for the first time, his work “Elmo” – of great impact – was unexpectedly the most beautiful of the show. His fairy-tale work, a sublime abstract fusion with a huge aesthetic strength tells the ancient Eastern concept of containers – one inside the other – and also evoking Vikings’ helmets magical shapes. Signed by Takahama, it is made in a limited number of pieces, 12 per colour.
