Mint is pleased to present a range of gorgeous colour tones this wintry season! Le Morandine are a series of beautiful, variously-shaped, hand-made candles that are inspired by the works of acclaimed Bolognese artist Giorgio Morandi. Giorgio Morandi was a forerunner of Minimalism best known for the subtle tones of around 1000 oil still lifes depicting bottles, vases, jugs and bowls.

Like the everyday objects in Morandi’s paintings, Le Morandine comes in muted colours with a chalky opacity. it comes in a set of 4 in which you can determine your own arrangement/compositions! Sonia Pedrazzini presents this project as tribute to the artist and an invitation to get to know his opera; it includes a pattern and a stylised reproduction of the figures sketched by Morandi as a template for the perfect composition.

Dear Mint Readers,
At first glance, you would immediately assume that they’re made of concrete. And who could blame you? Visually, everything about it resembles concrete; cold, grey and solid.
The truth is, the Kami Pots and Lights are made from 100% biodegradable cellulose, an enormously solid and light material.
This most abundant natural raw material is transformed into objects for daily use by simple air drying. The Kami collection of pots and home lighting encourage a new way of thinking in eco-friendly lifestyle products.
