Remember Traveling? Virginia Sin’s New Collection Was Inspired By a Trip Last Fall to Puglia
Over the past several weeks of quarantine, we’ve known quite a few designers to get creatively stuck. But one look at the warm terracotta hues and curving lines of Virginia Sin‘s new ceramics collection, and you’ll remember what it was like to travel — in summer, no less — all over again. The collection was inspired by the Brooklyn designer’s travels in southern Italy and the Puglia region in less dire times last September: An S-shaped vase recalls the cave-like homes found along Matera’s winding roads, while an inverted-V planter takes its cues from ancient irrigation systems. Cenotes, sinkholes, limestone bedrocks, Roman iron work — both the natural and manmade beauty of the region work their way into a housewares collection that includes everything from pendant lights to toothbrush holders. Like most things, it’s on hold for now, but available for pre-order on Sin’s site.
