Everything in life is balanced, as everything has its counterpart: the moon and the sun, wood, and stone, male and female. So, when Angelo’s daughter, Ophélia, was born, he felt that the design for the washbasin made in her name had to be the counterpart for the Alexis.
The Ophélia, with its sawed-off top, still has a monolithic form, but her round shapes make her more elegant, refined, and feminine. Actually, she is the Caesar and Alexis combined in one. Taking two designs and transforming them into a completely unique new one is one of Il Granito’s characteristics.
