About this artwork

Konstantin Grcic’s interest in planes and lines is expressed in his series of tableware for Italian manufacturer Serafino Zani. Grcic’s collection, Passami il sale, which literally means “pass the salt,” was engineered utilizing the skills of local craftspeople living and working to the north of Brescia. It includes a set of salad servers made from lengths of bent wire, a breadbasket perforated with elongated cuts that provide a decorative element, and serving trays made from thin sheets of laser-cut stainless steel cut and folded at the edges to create a lip.
