Severity and verve. Zaven’s design practice merges the conceptual daring of contemporary art with the rule-based creativity of graphics, enabling the firm to interface both with the world of industry and with the museum and gallery scene.

Responsive to all the latest trends but well aware of the history of design and architecture, Zaven provides a contemporary viewpoint particularly dense in meaning, embracing both two-and three-dimensionality.

“Rilievi it is a project in which two worlds of ceramics merge: the industrial world based on research and technology and the artisan one counting on excellent craftsmanship. The collection follows our research journey on the transformation of bi-dimensional drawing into volume; characterized by strong colors, geometric shapes and materic finishes.”
