Fine ceramic Brazza vase from the “Primates” collection designed by the Italian artist and product designer Elena Salmistraro for Bosa. Named after different breeds of apes (Mandrillus, Kandti and Brazza), the “Primates” collection of art vases feature vibrant colours, textures and patterns to bring the apes to life. Produced in fine ceramic and enriched with coloured glazes and precious metals, this range is available in 3 striking colourways:

Sage Green, Red and Precious Metals
Navy Blue, White and Precious Metals
Lilac Grey, White and Precious Metals

W25.5 x H40 cm

These ape-like vases in saturated hues are part of Elena Salmistraro’s latest collections presented in Paris for Bosa called “Primates”. This set of fine ceramic vases has been created to remind us of the delicate relationship between men and apes. The collection is comprised of 6 pieces, which were showcased at Maison et Objet, referencing three different breeds of apes: the mandrill, belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae; the golden monkey, Cercopithecus Kandti, belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae; and Debrazza’s Monkey, also belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae. Ape is the only animal that evokes man in body shape, expressions and movements. This powerful similarity to men is what makes it fascinating, and what inspired the creation of these vases.

Elena Salmistraro is an artist and product designer, who lives and works in Milan. She graduated from the Polytechnic University of Milan in 2008 and founded her own studio together with architect Angelo Stoli in 2009, where she has been working as a product designer and artist / illustrator ever since. Her creations are the result of a combination of art and design; which are characterised by a poetic style, the utmost care for details and a painstaking search for harmony in shapes. One of her main objectives is to explore the relationship between different mediums of the visual arts and expressive languages in order to fascinate people and evoke their emotions.
