The LCDC characters were born thanks to the contemporary vision of designer Luca Nichetto. Offering the perfect blend evoking the Renaissance atmosphere and the figurative heritage of the Ginori 1735 tradition, they stand out thanks to the study, research and development of forms from a single design, striking a harmonious balance between memory and innovation, characterised by the ultimate in craftsmanship.
To create the LCDC collection, Luca Nichetto reinterpreted the figurative art of the Manufacture, taking inspiration from Lucha Libre masks, from the illustrations of Jean-Paul Goude and from graffiti art. In the designer’s creative vision, the statuesque faces of the characters become the archetypal protagonists of the collection, mainly composed of candles available in various sizes and colours, complemented by incense burners and stick diffusers. Thanks to the design which blends the classicism of the ancestral statues with rigorous lines, the faces and sculptures take on a mysterious, iconic dimension. This artistic alchemy of graphic symbols creates a fusion of the scents and colours which evoke the ingredients used to create the fragrances.
