Peralia is a design space of jewelry and furniture items. The inspiration for the creation of my products comes from the passion for ceramic that my family passed to me since I was young, the nature and the fascinating forms in which it occurs, the culture of the Sardinian carpet and jewelry.
With this project I want to merge local knowledge, crafts and history of Sardinia with my personal journey in formal and graphics research. Textures and shapes give life to contemporary items for the home such as jugs, trays, glasses, all featuring the value of uniqueness.
Peralia is formal and material research, a cozy place where the balance of elements reigns, where craft and project’s culture meet.
