When east and west combine. A collection that reflects ancient historic Western and Eastern ceramic production. Hybrid decorations that come from a complex past that evolve into contemporary shapes.
Inspired by the CeramiX Art project this collection brings art closer to everyday life. Hybrid is produced in fine porcelain in China by Italian company SELETTI and consists of various tableware. The pieces in the collection are graphically divided between east and west with a coloured line marking the boundary between the two styles and, paradoxically, strengthening at the same time the union. The Hybrid collection looks at the present while reflecting on the irony of history proposing consequently an evocative contemporary interpretation.
CTRLZAK is a hybrid studio that integrates diverse disciplines and forms of expressions. Founded by artists and designers Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos, the studio’s creations are based on extensive research into humanity’s cultural history and the natural world that surrounds us in order to create a meaningful future.
Due to its’ interdisciplinary approach CTRLZAK specialises in art direction while creating artworks, objects and spaces but above all points of reflection where form follows meaning. Through the use of semiotic tools within the creative process the studio conceives projects and orchestrates situations that surpass common aesthetic values operating on a deeper cognitive level, aspiring to make people consider their actions and the planet that we live in.
