Famiglia Oliva

Famiglia Oliva

The project
The telling of a story through table design objects that suggest a new gesture, generate curiosity and speak of hospitality and well-being, celebrating an icon of Mediterranean culture: olive oil.
Famiglia Oliva populates the table with characters with different connotations, designed to present and enhance oils with different organoleptic properties and origins: Gea – the “Bread and Oil” dish, Elio – the “Oil Spoon” and Pigi – the “Olfactory Taster”.
Famiglia Oliva was born from the collaboration between Astrid Luglio and Mariella Caputo. The first one is a Neapolitan designer transplanted in Milan, who has always been attentive to the creation of objects capable of activating multisensory stories, experiences that investigate the renewed need for involvement of the senses. Mariella Caputo, sommelier, master oil maker and maître of the restaurant Taverna del Capitano, from Nerano, Terra delle Sirene, has always been attentive to read the succession of changes and the consolidation of new habits in the sharing of the table.
From the meeting of these two different experiences the project Famiglia Oliva was born: it starts from a Mediterranean icon, the olive oil, of which it proposes to tell the story and the consumption suggesting new gestures.
This collection of design objects, made by the craftsmen of Rua Catalana in tin-plated brass and copper, is characterized by archetypal shapes and the naming of the three objects contains the three fundamental elements for the cultivation of the olive tree: Gea – the earth, Elio – the sun and Pigi – the spring.
The “Bread and oil” dish, a welcome ritual that evokes archaic traditions and that tells the enhancement of a natural product and a low environmental impact supply chain: you eat everything, right down to the last crumb.
The “Spoonful of oil”, represents the ideal quantity to add to dishes: the perfect dosage to protect health, avoid waste as well as the risks of oxidation and rancidity that can accelerate the process of perishableness.
The “Olfactory Taster”, suggests through the hole which is the first sense to be involved in the evaluation of an oil: the sense of smell, to breathe in its sweet, slow and intense smell with a natural gesture. Immediately afterwards, the taste arrives, tasting in the right quantity ensures that the oil spreads in the mouth to perceive its aromatic components.
