￼The recent emergence of ‘Critical Design’ as a serious questioning of the traditional processes has highlighted an intriguing phenomenon. The idea that designers are increasingly feeling the need to impose a critical framework suggests that there might be a lack of criticism of design itself.
The CARTOCCI collection designed by Paola Paronetto gets its unique appearance from the special texture of paper and card, pulp and fibre added to the ceramic mixture. Their lightness is visually impacting; these articles look as fragile as if they were really made from paper. The CARTOCCI series arouses a desire in the observer to touch and manually explore these daring creations.
