Untraditional Architect

A self-professed untraditional architect, Emanuela Sala founded the Piatto Unico workshop in 2015, born out of a passion for design but also manual craft. Her work is guided by her curiosity for her surroundings, and by the observation of people and spaces exerted in order to capture their essence. Piatto Unico is the reinterpretation of traditional Italian ceramics from the 20th century with vintage illustrations borrowed from particular book editions, paintings, and drawings. Thus, she gives new life to rare pieces with a past history that is often obscure.
