Acqua Alta Collection

Murano - scent diffuser

'Acqua Alta is the italian word for the “High water”, phenomenon that occurs in the city of Venice. This project is conceived from the idea of enhancing a cultural and historical heritage that belongs to us: the city of Venice. Venice and the Venetian region are home to such craft techniques and secrets that few know how to play. Strong traditions characterize this city that has for a long time been the center of commerce and trade with the rest of the world.
Among them is the manufacturing of textiles, with a wide range of products created in the area. No less important is the Murano glass craft, and the trade of spices and essences that are precious keys to Mediterranean’s business. Acqua Alta as a tool to link all these techniques starting from a unique phenomenon. Water as transport, water as energy, water as an issue that affects the lives of citizens, leaving it’s mark. It deeply influences the life of this city, haping and surrounding it with thousands of different colors and textures. The first collection “Aqua Alta Collection”, is influenced by these findings. Aqua Alta includes a series of objects strongly linked to the theme. These can be summarized in a series of textiles (fabrics), a carpet, a series of fragrances correlated with diffuser, and a table lamp
The intent of the collection is to translate an important and delicate issue, as an inspiration for the development of objects that fit in the contemporary living.'
