Emanuela Sala – Piatto unico


Emanuela Sala is an architect, who grew up and trained in Milan but always has one foot elsewhere, discovering the diversity of habits and ways of living.

Her studies in anthropology and professional experiences in the communication sector play an important role in her design proposal.

She created PiattoUnico, a project dedicated to the reinterpretation of handmade ceramics, enhancing the knowledge and heritage of historic Italian manufactures.

Non-standard table art and design objects are the result of careful research and the desire to translate aspects of our contemporary world into durable forms.

The search for traditional forms and moulds becomes the starting point for the creation of tableware that is familiar but original, non-standard and carries a message, considering the table as an elected place of conversation and exchange of opinions.

The importance of our food choices and the role played by professional kitchens in today’s gastronomic culture have given rise to the desire to design dedicated objects, entering a more technical field but treating it with the lightness of play.

Midnight Line
With the aim of facilitating the gesture of wrapping long pasta shapes, and achieving a perfectly balanced experience, both for sight and taste, arises the design of the Midnight Line.
The Lombard designer Emanuela Sala, who has been involved for years in a project, the Piatto Unico project, to reinterpret handmade ceramics with the aim of enhancing the knowledge and heritage of historical Italian manufactures, accepts the challenge and proposes a design object with an innovative shape, the result of the careful research carried out in recent years and the desire to translate aspects of our contemporaneity into durable forms. It is from the synergy of these two different experiences, on the Milan-New York axis, that the project materializes on a plate.
The experience with eleit.it
“Being a Food Partner for Eleit.it means, for me, giving life to my natural expressive evolution which has always been linked to everything that is native and innovative. Eleit.it gave me the opportunity to dare and create an object aimed at enhancing a dish strongly rooted in the history of Italian cuisine in an elegant design setting that breaks into classicism.”
