COSTA NOVA, a Portuguese brand recognized for outstanding quality and unique products in fine stoneware, unveils brand-new collection of tableware – RIVIERA – designed by prestigious floral designer Christian Tortu.
Exhibited for the very first time this January at Maison & Objet Paris, the new Christian Tortu collection is inspired by the Riviera, the famous French and Italian region. This coastline has always been a haven for artists, attracted by its unmatched light. With their minds on holiday, they have often broached decorative arts all the while relying on unique traditional know-how. Thinking of them has given birth to the Riviera collection, a modest tribute to their tremendous talent.
This collection, a full dinner set and decorative pieces, is designed by the maestro of the floral arrangements by imagining this moments we share, when tables are being set where we will eat and drink, talk about the world or simply dream. By mixing shapes and colors of the Riviera landscape, Christian Tortu created a captivating collection, with a unique style, able to transcribe the sublime faces of this region.
This promise of gentleness, fragrances and colors, ever changing as the hours of the day go by, has been translated to tableware with COSTA NOVA, who is always looking to expand its range of collections to keep on surprising the customers and stay ahead of the latest trends.
