ITALIAN NOSTALGIA MADE FROM CERAMICS
SICILY stands for fine tableware with a modern interpretation of the traditional Italian splatter design – handmade in
Italy. By contemporarily interpreting a long ceramic
tradition, the brand’s philosophy is to create a Mediterranean
flair on your table, bringing the colours, the unique spirit and the soul of
Italy to your home. The characteristic speckle pattern is a tribute to Italy where,
in the 18th century, vessels of this kind were used in various ways,
for example for the preservation of tomato paste or to knead pasta dough. Being
more than just a decoration that could be realised by the use of simple

HANDMADE IN ITALY
The brand’s ceramics are lovingly handcrafted by small family business manufactures in Italy. From these places, they travel to their new homes to exude the Mediterranean lust for life and to quickly become the owner’s favourite tableware. STUDIO SICILY’s durable pieces are also appreciated by the restaurant business where they manage to meet the high requirements demanded.
UNO. Craftsmanship is at the heart of STUDIO SICILY. All products are subject to the commitment to maintain the rich heritage and values of Italian craft.
DUE. Each piece is unique. Perfection is imperfect, as nature dictates.
TRE. The colour palette is an homage to the Sicilian island’s cultural heritage.
STUDIO SICILY’s tableware is the modern continuation of a long tradition which began in the 18th century. The so-called “Lemmo” vessels, popular everyday objects of the Italian kitchen, were constantly in use to wash olives or store food.
Today, their descendants seek to create a dialogue between the traditional pattern and contemporary shapes to carry on a precious heritage.
