Now two years into the pandemic, restrictions have begun to ease. The world is now exhibiting the sense of normalcy everyone desired while cooped up in our homes. We’ve gone from enjoying one’s own company to once again welcoming dinners with guests and family lunches – things that were once only a part of our imagination.
“A table today is more about the celebration of conviviality (that we missed so much), the pleasure of a home dinner with friends, and the pleasure of getting to take care of the people we invited,” says Buccelatti’s Milan Design Week curator Frederic Sala.
Since its foundation in 1919, Milano-native brand Buccelatti has been a specialist in the craft of both jewelry and silverware making. Utilizing the precise and painstaking process of silversmithing, the company boasts of its craftsmanship, harnessed over the past 100 years.
Whether it be their classic Tahitian line of cutlery born in the ‘60s, crafted with the finest silver and delicately lined with bamboo, or their refreshing line of Murano glass pieces shaped into fruits, Buccelatti’s undisputed craftsmanship confidently finds itself amongst some of Italy’s most respected houses. Highly coveted and sought after, Buccelatti’s appeal goes beyond being an item in one’s dining arsenal. With meticulous artistry behind each piece, the Italian powerhouse continues to thrive as an industry titan, and a cult-favourite brand.
