Italian designer Alessandro Zambelli collaborated with Seletti to create Estetico Quotidiano, a collection of multi-purpose containers that remind familiar throwaway objects, reflecting the immediacy of modern consumerism. This inspiration voluntarily contrasts with the use of durable materials, including porcelain and borosilicate glass and refined craftsmanship.
The porcelain Watering Can from the Estetico Quotidiano Collection has elegant, sleek lines reminding a standard garden tool. It offers a long, angled spout allowing distributing water in the right places, navigating between the plant leaves. It is also an original and beautiful vase for fresh flowers. This refined object associates the design of a disposable product with durable materials to create a permanent solution, combining aesthetic and utility for daily usage.
Oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.

27 Lisboa takes you on a journey to Italy, where Kelly and Julien met with Seletti, an Italian brand that strives for constant innovation and originality.
The collections continuously blend objects of our daily life with pop art. Romano Seletti begins the story in 1964, in the Italian city of Mantova.
In the 1980s, his sons, Stefano and Miria, take the activity over, and the new generation brings brand new energy to the work while keeping focusing on Italian excellence.
Kelly and Julien collect multiple Seletti’s pieces in their own home and love how the brand’s unique vision and designs bring fun to their lifestyle.
