Plexiglass Meets High Design
SILIA, Ilaria Balduino Sartori’s luxury adornments company, uses Lucite (commonly known as Plexiglass) to create practical works of art for the home. SILIA pieces range from table settings to chandeliers. In SILIA’s designs, Lucite is often mixed with different materials such as ebony and gold leaf.
Pictured below are a candlestick and two boxes by SILIA. I curated them for their timelessness; they would fit into a home built in 1931 (the year Lucite was invented) as well as they fit into the design collections of today.
