Elena Salmistraro’s Pensieri Panteschi Collection for Lithea Offers a Nod to the Sea-Battered Cliffs of Tunisia
On a clear day on Pantelleria, you can spy Tunisia. The tiny Italian land mass in the Strait of Sicily inspired rising industrial design star Elena Salmistraro’s Pensieri Panteschi, a collection that mines the island’s unique sea-battered cliffs and vine-covered stone dwellings. Sicilian manufacturer Lithea produces the series, the standout of which is Gadir, a 95-inch-square decorative panel, its Bianco Fenice stone face embellished with wavelike engraving and marble and copper appliqués. The Specchio di Venere table, made of CNC-cut marble shapes assembled by hand into a single marquetry top, is joined by matching Sibà stools. Tabletop items, including totemic vases, round out the unusual line. All are imbued with Salmistraro’s characteristic eye for allegory, symmetry, and layering.
