Ciotola | Anna Castelli Ferrieri | Kartell, Italy | 1976

Anna Castelli Ferrieri Ciotola Anna Castelli Ferrieri
Kartell, Italy, 1976

Designed in 1976 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri and in production until 1981, these objects have definite similarities to the “Domed Containers” discussed previously here. The Ciotola, or bowl, series comes in a range of sizes and three colors, the colors of the Italian flag: green, white, and red, just as the domed containers do. This series is quite rare, too. Like the domed containers, they were also originally marketed with bases and lids as separate items. Flat lids and domed lids are interchangeable, so it is possible for bowls to be covered with domed lids, but this combination would be unusual. Both the bowls and flat lids are made from injection molded ABS.

The bowls are cylinders with a rounded base. A 2 mm raised, circular ridge at the bottom of the bowl (see image below) makes it appear like the bowl is floating on whatever surface it’s set on. There is an imprint on the bowl that reads:

Kartell ® 710X

The flat lids are labeled:

Kartell ® 731X



I don’t know if a lid of any kind exists for the larger bowls, hence the “?” in the table below.
