MEET THE DESIGNER

Aldo Londi

Vibrant colors and artistic textures are some features that identify Aldo Londi’s work. He crafted all kinds of pottery, from lamps to vases and clocks to animal figurines. Aldo Londi designs and talent with ceramics have made him one of the most relevant and pioneering pottery designers of the mid-century modern era.

Born in Montelupo Fiorentino, a town in Florence, Italy, Londi started experimenting with ceramics at a very young age. He began to work for a local ceramics manufacturer named Fratelli Fanciullacci when he was only 11 years old. During WWII, between 1935 and 1945, Londi was a prisoner of war in Johannesburg, South Africa. After the war ended, Londi returned to Italy and was named Art Director of the Bitossi studio.

His partnership with Bitossi would span over 50 years. In that time, Londi created over 1000 pieces and collaborated with iconic architects and designers like Ettore Sottsass, Piero Fornasetti, Matteo Thun and Karim Rashid. His experience molding ceramics and unique technique are visible in all of his creations. Arkitectura, a monochromatic series, is a collection of stylish and quirky animal figures that were handmade by Londi. However, his most recognized collection is called “Rimini Blu.” Londi began crafting this series 1955, merging layers of blue and turquoise to get that unique vibrant color which he is now recognized for.

Londi gained international recognition and was called to assist several exhibitions in Prague and Dusseldorf and provided artistic advice around the world. Nowadays his collections are still being reproduced and originals sought after by collectors around the world. Although he played with different colors and patterns, the Rimini Blu collection remains as Aldo Londi signature design and is, without a doubt, an indicator of mid-century modern.
