Buccellati presents the new Tahiti Picnic Baskets , resulting from the collaboration with designer Patricia Urquiola . The items are unveiled at the new silver boutique , opened in the court of the marvelous Palazzo Gavazzi in Via Montenapoleone 23.

These new objects enrich the famous tableware and objects line Tahiti, conceived in the 1960s by the Maison Buccellati and characterized by the discerning crafting of silver and bamboo . This singular combination evok es the natural wonders of the Polynesian islands and remain s today a symbol of elegance and sophistication

The new Picnic Baskets expand the Tahiti Collection with a contemporary interpretation of informal conviviality , ideal for outdoor gatherings. The idea was born during Milan Design Week 2022, at Buccellati’s exhibition “Galateo, A Journey Into Conviviality”, in which Patricia Urquiola conceived an installation evoking the atmosphere of a picnic, playfully yet sophisticatedly reinterpreting the rules of table etiquette

At the end of the exhibition, Andrea Buccellati and Patricia Urquiola have continued their collaboration by re interpreting the classic picnic basket , using the Maison’s distinctive codes and materials as well as the designer’s modern aesthetic .

“We have invited Patricia Urquiola to design a particular accessory that would enrich the elegance of our Tahiti collection with a unique freshness ” states Andrea Buccellati, Creative Director of the Maison , “ The decision to focus the collaboration on a picnic basket, symbol par excellence of conviviality and relaxation, turned out to be the ideal opportunity to portray moments of informal refinement ” .

The new Tahiti Picnic Baskets are crafted with the highest level of artisanal mastery typical of the Maison Buccellati. Externally, they feature an interweaving of leather in the shades of beige and brown; the internal structure is made of wood covered in a soft suede fabric . The silverware included in the set belongs to the Buccellati Tahiti collection , while the porcelain items are part of the collection created in collaboration with Ginori 1975
