No mere stylistic exercise, Madre is the outcome of an extraordinary creative effort, drawing inspiration from the history of Italian design to breathe new life into the habits of contemporary living. This is the vision that accompanied the birth of Madre, the new collection designed by Angeletti-Ruzza for Flaminia, a collection that has all it takes to become a company icon.
Italian rationalist architecture permeates the culture of good design and the collective memory, and serves as the meeting point between the creativity of designers Angeletti-Ruzza and the manufacturing expertise of Flaminia. In this exchange, the Madre collection took shape. The elegant harmony of lines and proportions satisfies both stylistic and functional needs and, at the same time, reveals the company’s ability to meet any production challenge, no matter how demanding.
The stylistic features of the past do not give shape to the elements in this collection, but suggest a contemporary interpretation, and, without any unnecessary frills, provide a pleasing
decorative component in the subdued profiles that add a gentle touch to the monolithic presence of the washbasin, or in the vaguely sinuous lines of the toilet bowl and the bidet.
Up-to-the-minute design draws inspiration from classic style to create a paradoxical element of break with the past: the past and the present feed off one another in a perfect dialectic
relationship, such as the one between the virtuous thinking of the designer and the outstanding craftsmanship of Flaminia.
