The Paola C. showroom is located in the courtyard of via Solferino 11, Milan and hosts a tableware collection based on a youthful yet refined interpretation. The Paola C. collections of objects made using a variety of materials are created by Italian and foreign designers and artists under the art direction of Aldo Cibic. Paola C.ís collaboration with Aldo Cibic started in 2000 with a series of hand-finished ceramics and a line of mouth-blown glassware. Over the years, the collection as well as the search for new materials have expanded, maintaining the goal to create practical, elegant and poetic objects. Paola C.ís commitment to offering opportunities to the young Ė and Aldo Cibicís relationship with various universities Ė started a constant and fruitful collaboration with schools through a series of exhibitions, each dedicated to a single school. These initiatives helped create collections of products, most of which are now well-known and successful. In 2001 Paola C. invited the Royal College of London, offering young international designers the opportunity to design new everyday and practical objects. In 2002 and 2005 the project involved Fabrica, the Benetton group international communications research center. In 2003 the invitation was extended to the young designers of the Tonji University of Shanghai and in 2011 to the young designers of Atelier Prey of the Design and Art Faculty of the Free University of Bozen. The selected objects of all collections are produced and marketed under the Paola C. brand. The research project will continue over the next years, constantly involving young talents from all over the world. Paola C. intends to propose herself as the editor of collections of contemporary and practical, simple yet out of the ordinary tableware.
