A sweet love story has inspired this wonderful project: the beautiful princess Mata conquers the proud warrior Grifo.

This cabinet by altreforme is a tribute to this gloomy giant and to his mate, said to have founded Messina city in Sicily.

Elena Salmistraro

Elena Salmistraro designs Grifo and Antonio Aricò designs Mata. The two designers have been connected by a deep friendship bond that dates back to their university times, and they succeeded in building a perfect dialogue with no smears that resulted in the possibility to shape two objects with a strong iconic value. The objects are intimately connected to their respective design dialectics, but ultimately never abandon the essential continuity which is required by such an experiment. This project could only see the light thanks to eccentric and kaleidoscopic Altreforme (Fontana Group), who have integrated and contributed to the design, thanks to their personal knowledge and long-standing experience.
