“John, a long-time collaborator of Salvatori, is revered for his simple, expressive architecture and the new Ellipse home collection perfectly demonstrates his famously rigorous approach. Most people don’t get to see the amount of care John puts into creating even the smallest object. When designing the collection, he spent countless hours perfecting each curve, manipulating the Bianco Carrara marble by a fraction of a millimetre at a time to find the exact, precise shape. No matter how long it took, we would not go into production until he was 100% satisfied with the design. Collaborating on this collection was a reconfirmation of how rewarding it is to work with John, a true master of his craft”
