Polenta Collection


Product and Pattern Design, Art Direction and Styling

2015, Italy




Mathery x Pijama

Polenta is made by grinding corn into flour, then boiled into a porridge. The north of Italy is divided between people who loves it creamy and thick and who like to let it set and slice it. Torn between the two ancient habits we started playing with polenta. What it came out was an unexpected rocky looking landscape of cold polenta blocks. 

Polenta is a limited edition of bags designed by Mathery for Pijama, the collection is composed by a Bucket Bag and a Sack. The black and white pattern portrays a unique vision of the Italian polenta celebrating the north of Italy, where both Pijama and Mathery Studio are based. 

The two models, the women’s Bucket bag and the unisex Sack introduce cylindric and curvy shapes to the Pijama collection for the Spring Summer 2015. 

You can purchase it in selected shops and on: crowdyhouse and www.pijama.it
