Roberto Sironi (1983) is an Italian designer, who graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in Industrial Design.
After his studies he has worked with different design studios where he has developed his design approach. Roberto considers each project as a story, developed through research that involves different aspects, from rituals and anthropological references to historical memory, designing with a contemporary approach always appropriate to the context. He draws with the ambition to reveal the expressive potential of each material chosen, through a synthetic and minimal style, trying to reveal the poetry of the objects.Each project is a little journey, made by new discoveries and the people met along the way.
Currently Roberto combines his design work while also working with the Department of Design at the Politecnico di Milano, as a researcher.
This collection of three vases is made with a technique created 8,000 years ago by the Etruscans. Bucchero is a clay that is baked at 900°C in a steel box where a chemical reaction occurs due to a reduction of oxygen and charcoal smoke present in the chamber of the oven. This process gives the vases their typical black colour with silvery shades.
Buccheri Vases are hand carved with special tools made in boxwood. This process polishes the vase, leaving a rough finishing at the opening of the vase. This technique gives the sophisticated colour variation from black to anthracite grey. Minimal and stylish, these precious vases are designed to enhance the beauty of this material and each vase is unique, combining extraordinary tactile quality with a very thin thickness.
