See Fashion Designer Luisa Beccaria’s Gorgeous Tableware Collection for Artemest
The Milanese designer translates her romantic patterns and colorways into a beautiful array of place settings and glassware
“Luisa Beccaria and Artemest both exist to arouse and celebrate a desire for beauty in our everyday lives, and a common mission is always a good starting point,” says Artemest founder Ippolita Rostagno, who recently cohosted a magical evening at Mr. C Seaport in Manhattan to toast the Milanese fashion designer’s new tabletop collection. “Moreover, tableware is one of the categories that is nearest to my heart, and the idea of bringing Luisa’s beautiful Italian aesthetic to our assortment made it a perfect collaboration.”
In her debut collection for Artemest, Beccaria designed a selection of dinner and soup plates adorned with romantic wreaths of blossoms. An array of pastel-colored glassware, pitchers, and cake stands complement the place settings.
“This collection is meant to be layered,” says Rostagno, who is also CEO of the jewelry line Ippolita, which offers sculptural gemstone and diamond rings, earrings, and necklaces. “The charger, plates, and bowls can be mixed and matched—and the colored glasses complete the gracefully unplanned look.”
Beccaria’s fairy-tale collection joins Artemest’s already distinguished catalogue of decorated Italian tableware by Manifattura Richard Ginori 1735, Coralla Maiuri, and Paola Caselli, among others. “We look for pieces that embody the heritage of Italian craftsmanship with a contemporary approach,” says Rostagno. “The most important factors are uniqueness and, of course, a strong point of view. We are also very interested in designers that work across different product categories as they often come up with novel fabrications.”
Additionally, the company also features furniture, lighting, and other decorative accents made by artisans from Italy. “Artemest was born precisely to showcase custom collections made by Italian designers,” she says. “So as a practice we seek out the best of the best to share with decor enthusiasts around the world.”
