CEDIT reissues the Lapis vase designed by Castiglioni
To celebrate the centenary of Achille Castiglioni’s birth, CEDIT is taking part in a major cultural project, organized by Fondazione Achille Castiglioni: a rich schedule of events and exhibitions, including the show of some iconic objects and furniture pieces, designed by Achille and recreated by companies that had an important collaboration with the designer over the years.
CEDIT gives a new life to one of the most iconic piece of Castiglioni, the iconic Lapis ceramic vase, designed in 1968. An unique piece of ingenious design, originally in three sizes and a variety of colours, a real hymn to the superlative creative talent of Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni.
With this project, CEDIT underlines once again its connection with the Italian art and design world and its purpose of promoting the country’s cultural priceless heritage worldwide.
