The Ellipse collection is a family of vessels and utensils for the home designed by long-time Salvatori collaborator John Pawson. Sharing a geometry and materiality – each piece is shaped from a continuous piece of Bianco Carrara marble – the collection is typical of Pawson’s expressive, minimal style: the simple forms of the vessels evoking a sense of calm and spirituality.

The technique used to create the soft, sinuous curves of each piece in the Ellipse collection replicates that of stones on a riverbed smoothed over the centuries by the relentless flow of water. The tiny holes that may appear in the surface of the stone are a natural characteristic of this process and should not be considered a flaw.
