KAPASA tells an age-old story of Italian craftwork. It is inspired by the tradition of one of the most delightful places in Italy, Salento. It is a custom that smells of home and family at a time when typical culinary delicacies, spices, olive oil, and wine were preserved in ceramic containers, enamelled on the inside, known as “capase”.
UPuglia, a creative team with the objective of reinterpreting traditional Apulian craftwork, has reinterpreted its form and substance to create a wall-mounted decorative container with a minimal and colourful design, made and painted entirely by hand and in accordance with the ceramic tradition of Grottaglie.
KAPASA, a furnishing accessory suitable for indoor and outdoor use, reveals all its versatility in a variety of settings, with the possibility of composing hanging sideboards, bookcases, night tables, or even wall units for the bathroom. KAPASA of different colours and sizes can be combined to make it an element of contiguity, in spaces with a modern and contemporary style, or to add an impression of design in those with an older, more traditional feel.
KAPASA is not only an elegant design accessory, but also a homage to a land with a wealth of history and traditions.
