Discover Lola Giardino, the designer behind Nona Bruna, the ceramic, recipes and creative experiences brand, all made only with love.
What made you want to create NonaBruna?
In 2012, I felt the need to give a concrete form to my own ideas. To let go the computer and start creating with my own hands. Something authentic, that would reconnect myself to my family traditions. Something that would make me come back home.
What are your main inspirations to create new products?
I get inspiration from my everyday, travels, nature, my family, books, people… everything can awaken my inspiration.
The motto of your brand?
Each moment is unique and irreplaceable, so we need to make it matter.
How would you define your style?
Authentic, perfectly imperfect, organic, natural, beautiful, luminous.
Between all your works, which one is your favourite? Why?
My favourite one is the first ceramic plate I’ve made. It’s big, irregular, heavy. But it’s full of enthusiasm, innocence and lots of love. Now I’m making a new set, that I also really like.
¿Your trick to start your day?
Meditating 20min, having breakfast with cereales, fruits, seeds and vegetable milk.
