After completing her university studies at the IUAV’s Faculty of Architecture in Venice, Cristina Celestino began her professional career by working for leading architecture firms, with a particular focus on interior architecture and design. In 2009 she moved to Milan, where she founded the Attico Design brand, under which she created original lamps and furnishings with distinctive materials and forms. In 2012 she was chosen to take part in SaloneSatellite; further to this important showcasing opportunity, Attico Design pieces went on display in a large number of international galleries and showrooms. At Design Miami 2016, she designed the The Happy Room collection for Fendi; the following year, for Sergio Rossi she created a fascinating interior design and a furniture collection for the concept for the brand’s new boutiques.
The Policroma ceramics collection offers an aesthetic formula that incorporates both the stylistic canons of classicism and those of a compositional and expressive code more in line with modern taste, skilfully combining them in a well balanced mix. The collection’s repertoire of large slabs features motifs inspired by two separate sources: on the one hand the exquisite, always surprising vein texture of some specific metamorphic rocks, and on the other the sophisticated colours of Marmorino plaster.
