Brown bowl by Massimo Nordio
The elegant brown bowl is part of the "F" series expressly created for Caffè Florian by Massimo Nordio and highlights the historical bond between the city of Venice and the glass-making art.
The brown recalls the colour of chocolate and coffee, while amber, red and gold, chose by the artist, are among the most characteristic colours of the décor of the historical Caffè, as well.
Another distinctive feature of this unique piece is the “F” placed at the bottom of the bowl and inspired by the Venetian Gondoliers' striped uniform,
Small-sized yet capacious, this curve shaped bowl with rounded corners is a true piece of design which will give a touch of uniqueness to your home décor.
This artwork is the epitome of both aesthetics and functionality: it can be used to drop off small objects, like keys or daily essential items, but also it can be filled with chocolates and bonbons to offer to your guests.
A souvenir to collect or to gift, especially addressed to our most faithful customers.
