This panda sculpture in pastel green hues is a part of Elena Salmistraro’s latest collections presented in Paris for Bosa in 2020. This fine ceramic sculpture has been created as the international symbol of all endangered species (it’s no coincidence that it’s also the icon of the WWF). In this sculpture, this cute and often lazy bear stands proudly on his hind legs. A sort of armour, the crown of leaves and branches of his favourite food, bamboo, turn him into a hero ready to fight to defend all other animals. The unique decorations of this ceramic piece – with its alternating hues, 3D inserts and refined shiny and matt finishes – make it a fascinating character that inspires the imagination and reminds us how vital it is to save our planet.
Elena Salmistraro is an artist and product designer, who lives and works in Milan. She graduated from the Polytechnic University of Milan in 2008 and founded her own studio together with architect Angelo Stoli in 2009, where she has been working as a product designer and artist / illustrator ever since. Her creations are the result of a combination of art and design; which are characterised by a poetic style, the utmost care for details and a painstaking search for harmony in shapes. One of her main objectives is to explore the relationship between different mediums of the visual arts and expressive languages in order to fascinate people and evoke their emotions.
