Earth, Soul and Design – Made in Sardinia
Magical Sardinia, where
“[...] it is still possible to sleep a light sleep among the atoms of timelessness, where [...] one can read in the wind and the wave, in the faces of men and women, in their language and melodies, in the way the evening smoke of the hearth ripples over their dwellings. ’’
20th-century German Writer and Philosopher
From the ancient Sardinian: Keep lit, enliven, sow.
Abitzai is an ancient word loaded with meaning, lost in the distant roots that unite the universe of the land and its rural village. Today it is a way of being, thinking and designing, in tune with nature and touch with traditions and the land. It is an expression of the beauty and substance of the land.
Abitzai: Grace and loveliness, a virtuous return to the origins
“The land has a mysterious connection with time in the rural village. It is consciousness, enchantment, belonging and the centre of the world and destiny. It has a powerful voice full of mysteries,which should not be silenced, but listened to and indulged in"
Claudia V. Mazohl, Business Development of Ceramica Mediterranea e Abitzai
We aspire to diﬀuse the culture, beauty, and mystery of an almost vanished Sardinia that intrigues and seduces. Where one evokes the ancient and feels the depth of your roots. (It could be) the land of each of us...
Balancing the past, the present and the future
We designed Abitzai creations to transform the home: with vivid colours, sinuous lines e island geometries.
Created by contemporary designers from the critical elements of the Sardinian land and its millenary culture.
Made entirely on the island, with local materials and labour,
to give voice to unique materials, bearers of emotions and beauty.
