The Bitossi family began production of ceramic roof tiles in Florence in the 15th Century but it is since the 1920’s that Bitossi have been at the forefront of ceramic and glaze development. The Bitossi vases are the culmination of these decades of research and development and allowed both Londi and the ceramicists free reign to push the boundaries of both shape and colour. The collection now provides a concise view of art ceramic from the period. Bitossi continue this tradition today with designers such as Karim Rashid, Campana Brothers and Arik Levy pushing the possibilities of the material.
