From Marta Sansoni’s research into accessories connected with the consumption and serving of oil comes Oliette, a bottle holder. In the case of Oliette, the designer reproduces the foliage of the olive tree, a weave of branches and leaves created through the laser cutting and folding of a sheet of steel giving a sense of movement, as if they are being blown by the wind. Oliette has both a poetic and original appearance. Oliette is a sort of mix between a bottle coaster and a glacette, it's evoking a new kind of object, especially for its particular functionality: to hold the bottle of oil emphasizing it and at the same time to avoid grease stains on the table.
