In the early 80s Mario Lispi organized an exhibition dedicated to the ceramics art and suggested to his friend Kazuhide Takahama to design a work.

Although the Japanese architect had used this kind of material for the first time, his work Elmo – of great impact – was unexpectedly the most beautiful of the show. His fairy-tale work, a sublime abstract fusion with a huge aesthetic strength tells the ancient Eastern concept of containers – one inside the other – and also evoking Vikings’ helmets magical shapes.

Signed by Takahama, it is produced in a limited edition of 12 for each colour.
