  • Aldo Londi Bitossi Rimini Blue Glazed Ceramic Square Ashtray, Italy, 1960s
    By Aldo Londi, Bitossi

On the one hand, Londi’s perspective fostered the making of Bitossi’s popular whimsical animal figures, hand-shaped and -carved and finished in a rich azure glaze known as “Rimini Blue.” But with his other hand, Londi reached out to thoughtful, experimental designers such as Sottsass. Starting in the 1950s, some 20 years before he founded the Memphis Postmodern design...
