The ‘Meridiane’ collection of home accessories is inspired by the theatrical suggestion of the shadows of decorative elements projected onto architectural spaces.
White surfaces are typical of several Classical and Renaissance architectures and are reproduced here with handmade ceramic. These canvases are perfect for painting the elongated shapes that the sun draws on the ground at different times of the day.
Inspired by the urban element of the ‘piazza’, the tray 19:00 from the ‘Meridiane’ collection is the ideal accessory to serve convivial snacks or to simply decorate a table.
Its minimalist yet sophisticated shape is a style statement and gives it a timeless charm that allows it to adapt to different environments. The vertical component, painted with precious metals such as 24k gold, platinum and copper, recalls the recurring decorative element in Italian squares, whether it be a sculpture, an obelisk or a fountain. This gesture is underlined by the painted shadow that stands out unequivocally on the surface of the ‘piazza’ as if it were a sundial and makes this cutting board a unique object of its kind.

About the Brand
The LATOxLATO design workshop was founded in 2018 by Francesco Breganze de Capnist and Virginia Valentini. Wanderers by calling and Italians by birth, Francesco is originally from Vicenza and Virginia is from Bologna. After graduating from Milan Polytechnic, they began working in the United States. A married couple, they are partners in work and in life, sharing a deep creative and inquisitive bond. This experience abroad, which they continue alternately with their work in Italy, inspires them to invent out-of-the-box designs. Their passion for their roots, for Made in Italy artisanship and the rich heritage of Italian art and architecture blends together with an international and multicultural attitude. This gave rise to the concept of LATOxLATO, which creates objects according to an idea of contemporary luxury. Natural and precious materials, 100% Made in Italy craftsmanship and unusual forms inspired by the rich heritage of Italian art and architecture.
