Model 444 ceramic black bowl for Il Sestante

Iconic bowl or ashtray, bold example of Sottsass' early ceramic production: the meeting point of two clashing shapes: the square and the circle, emphatized by the glossy finishing. This piece was part of the collection created for "Il Sestante", a small production that it's now very hard to find.
Beautiful signature underneath.
