Terra kitchen
Minotticucine 2005

 

The earth, its waters, its forests and its mountains is extraordinarily beautiful in itself, in its simple and bare presence. Differently from everyday artefacts, in which their use and function are predominant, earth is what It is, independently from what we are, what we do and what use we give to it. Conceiving the “Terra“ kitchen, I imagined an object that is useful and functional and present itself with the same strength as nature: solid, timeless and abstract. I expressed the immense value of the earth with a rigorous geometrical shape and natural materials –stone and cedar. Cooking on a porphyry worktop, which is twenty-eight million years old, makes me feel reverent and fortunate at the same time.
