Mammiferi Esclusi (Every animal but mammals) line is the first, self-produced dinnerware collection by PiattoUnico. Designed in 2017, it is a limited edition composed by big dinner plates (or under plates) and small bread/butter/appetizer plates.
The 32 cm plates setcome in 4 different designs, representing the four elements: the swallow stands for air, the scarab represents earth, the dragon is for fire and the fish for water.
The ceramic plates are crafted in Italy with the old moulds from the local traditions of Veneto. The illustrations on the plates have been inspired by various XIX century scientific sources, before and after Darwin discoveries, even if the black&white lines put the images somehow far from the moment, into the flow of life and knowledge. Our plates are precious but functional, dishwasher safe. Please note that they are handcrafted, therefore any possible little difference or imperfection is part of the process and makes each piece unique.
