Vintage Sabattini's Scoops, Italy, 1960s

About

These are two Sabattini's scoops. A pair of scoops designed by the silver master Lino Sabattini in 1960s. In metal, silver plate, in excellent condition, with a very sophisticated line and a vintage touch. You could collect a made in Italy artwork, with the great signature of Lino Sabattini, a name indissolubly bound with the name of Gio Ponti. Lino Sabattini (Correggio, 1925) When Lino Sabattini, the silver master, was a child, found a copy of Gio’ Ponti review “Domus”. It became his textbook, his Bible. In the brassware shop he earned his living, but he also learned the techniques of metal’s trade. In an old windmill on the lake meets Rolando Hettner, a displaced German who made beautiful works of pottery, painted and read great numbers of books. The man in the old windmill became the exhilarating experience of his spare time, a master of existential tension who encouraged Sabattini to seek radically new artistic solutions for his work. Now thirty, Sabattini left Blevio for Milan, where he found basement and setup up a small laboratory with all the essential tools for his craft. His contacts with “Domus” became more frequent. He began to meet young architects and pupils studying under Gio’ Ponti. One of them brought the master a few metal objects created by the young craftsman. So, one day Ponti himself showed up in Sabattini’s basement. He looked around, handled a few objects and gave Sabattini an idea to work on. In no more than three days Sabattini has finished the job. Ponti was enthusiastic. This was the beginning of a long friendship marked by several fundamental landmarks: Milan Triennials, Venice Biennials, the publication of his works and a one-man exhibition both in Italy and abroad. In 1956 Sabattini caused sensation with the prototype of the “Como” Set at the Paris Exhibition “Shapes and Ideas from Italy”. From 1958-1963 he worked in Paris and in Milan for Christofle, a prestigious company, trying in vain to sweep away stale and lifeless production work. In 1964 he moved to Bregnano, a little spot between Milan and Como. He became the entrepreneur of his own ideas, sensibility and diversity which found no place in the contemporary world of production. This began a solitary adventure which eventually took solid shapes in the Argenteria Sabattini, where he created beautiful silver shaped of exquisite simplicity.
