The Italian manufacturer was created in 1921 by Guido Bitossi close to Firenze (a place with strong tradition in ceramic manufacture). The company came to design in the 50’s with Aldo Londi as art director.
Bitossi is a reference in ceramic design for collectors and is an example of Italian excellence, thanks a.o. pieces by important designers like Ettore Sottsass and Piero Fornasetti. Bitossi always keeps alive its original craft roots, combined with a constant innovation, as visible in the contemporary production of limited editions by big names like Arik Levy, DimoreStudio and Karim Rashid
