Italian décor and furniture designer, creative director and traveler Gian Paolo Venier, who bases concrete tableware on ancient Iranian architecture, plans to show his new collection at this year’s Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan from April 17-22.
Venier’s new collection of tableware, available in two shades of light grey and anthracite, is inspired by a postcard showing Tughrul Tower, a 12th-century monument located in Rey County, Tehran Province.
