Cori is a fruit bowl, a centerpiece, a sculpture as well, or a simple piece of furniture whose design, inspired by the shape of Sicily, wants to represent what “is typically Sicilian”, through a series of symbolical elements. The shape of a heart results from the combination of its volumes; its dialectal name “Cori” (heart) namely expresses, often in a dramatic way, a person’s strongest and most passionate feelings. Its hollow shape is contrasted with a protruding part on the left, representing Mount Aetna volcano, from whose “crater” the fragrance of orange blossom will be spread by small red wicker sticks, symbolizing an eruption. Finally, considering the ancient custom of re-using objects or some of their parts for other purposes, the concept is to employ remains of micro-laminated timber or coloured wood fiber – commonly used for the production of other items. This gives Cori the added value of uniqueness and environmental ethics. There are two versions of the same product, so as to adapt to one’s personal taste and to the context where “Cori” is to be placed: “CORI NATURAL”, whose monochromatic texture recalls the wheat fields after summer threshing, and “CORI FOLK”, whose chromatic combinations imitate the ornaments and decorations, although deconstructed, of the Sicilian folklore tradition. All fruit bowls are made in Italy.

Luigi Ricerca

Zag was born from the idea of ​​two Sicilian artisans, Luigi Ricerca and Fabio Cocimano. After many years of experience and appreciated collaborations with architects and interior decorators, and after producing furniture of different shapes and materials, they decided to create their own brand. It is essentially dedicated to project production with designers they work with as well as new ones.
