This is a serie of boxes, their shape is like a shipping container as the Monaco Pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milano is, and they are made of ceramic, faience to be precise.
«Shell boxes serie» is named after sea shells which are a kind of organic container, in a way, that can hold in precious things. Ceramic reminds me of all these antic contenants like amphoras, that we find nowadays under the sea, such a long time after it has been made, this material has this great potential of keeping memories. They look used but will last for long, as the road to bring the Pavilion to life seemed tiring but it has lead to a brillant result which will stay in minds for long.
