The buttonsThese small objects that accompany us throughout life, essential and decorative. Buttoning know is one of the first things you learn as children. Vito Nesta proposes these objects so small, it puts them under his magnifying glass to take them on our tables. Reinterprets the TV and the button with the muted tones. Six ceramic plates in six different colors designed to become protagonists on our table and playful furnishings.

"Like when a child poked between the tools of tailoring grandmother and spent hours watching her treasures, I took his box of buttons and spent hours playing with those little colored discs."

The button, Since prehistoric times on the banks of the rivers, in the Bronze Age in China, in ancient Rome as a decoration on the buckles and laces that did not need that support, they began to take the form that is now familiar to all. During the Middle Ages small and worthless as the Orlando in love and, after a century, precious ornament of sovereign and powerful and heirloom jewelry. In 1700 buttons flourish on blouses and veils to disappear after the Napoleonic Empire as a decorative element and then reappear as we remember him to this day produced on an industrial scale. Today the button follows the fashion and functional object will be seeking in a small and precious treasure.
