Gesso (“Chalk”) is the first result of the search for simplicity and linear clarity which Stilleben applies to designing and creating tableware. The company takes particular care over the choice of colours and quality of materials. This collection is inspired by the tactile, opaque surfaces of chalk; the theme is interpreted using vitrified stoneware, which is processed using artisanal techniques, as are all the materials used in the collection, including hemp and Italian walnut wood.
