Buccellati, Urquiola Unveil Tahiti Baskets at Milan Design Week

Tahiti Collection 2 1

In a glamorous unveiling at Milan Design Week 2024, Buccellati introduced its latest creation, the Tahiti Picnic Baskets, in collaboration with iconic designer Patricia Urquiola. This event marked the opening of Buccellati's new silver boutique nestled in the historic Palazzo Gavazzi at Via Montenapoleone 23.

Originating in the 1960s, Buccellati's Tahiti collection marries the artisanal finesse of silver with the rustic charm of bamboo, drawing inspiration from the picturesque Polynesian islands. This addition breathes new life into the collection, redefining the art of dining al fresco with a blend of tradition and modernity.

The inception of the Tahiti Picnic Baskets traces back to the 2022 Milan Design Week, where Urquiola's exhibit "Galateo, A Journey into Conviviality" sparked the idea. This ongoing partnership flourished, culminating in a series of baskets that harmoniously blend Buccellati’s heritage with Urquiola’s innovative design ethos.

Andrea Buccellati, the Maison's Creative Director, celebrated this fusion, noting, "Patricia has woven a fresh layer of contemporary allure into our time-honored Tahiti line, making each piece not just a container, but a story of elegance and ease."

Artisans at Buccellati have crafted these baskets with meticulous attention to detail. They feature an intricate leather exterior in subtle earth tones and an interior of polished wood lined with plush suede. The accompanying silverware and porcelain pieces, crafted in partnership with Ginori 1975, echo the luxurious and refined aesthetic that Buccellati is renowned for. The collection includes diverse sets tailored for various occasions—from a comprehensive four-person picnic ensemble to exclusive setups for coffee, tea, and Champagne, ensuring every outdoor gathering is infused with sophistication and style.
