Cochleae vases collection is inspired by the life cycle of the snails and captures their growth when the invertebrate's body (represented by the curved glass) develops upwards from the embracing shell symbolized by semicircular shells handcrafted from fragments of historical stones only found in Matera (Città dei Sassi, UNESCO World Heritage, European Capital of Culture), recovered and reprocessed following a sustainable production cycle. The surface of the handcrafted stone piece is treated with an ecological substance developed by COKI. The glass and stone components are not glued and can be separate, disassembled, and ready for new uses.


Sviluppo (Development) represents the second phase of snail's life cycle, in which the snail's body (represented by the curved glass) rises, embracing the calcarenite shell, developed upwards.
