Ceramics company Richard Ginori holds a special place in the hearts of Italian design lovers. The work that Gio Ponti produced during his reign as art director from 1923 to 1930 is to die for. Last year, our hearts sunk to hear the company was facing bankruptcy and may pass away. Luckily Gucci Group stepped in and saved the day. And this week, we were excited to see Missoni create a special collection of Richard Ginori pieces. The colors are just wonderful.
