In 1921 Guido Bitossi founded the ceramics company
Manifattura Cav. Guido Bitossi & Figli in Montelupo, Italy. Aldo Londi
became the creative director after WWII, and was the guiding force until the
1980s. Londi designed thousands of forms in addition to the patterns and
techniques that were applied to them. His 1950s Rimini Blu collection is the
most recognized with its striking layers of blue and turquoise glazes, and many
of the pieces are still in production today. Bitossi was distributed in the U.S.
by Raymor, one of the most influential importers of modern decorative arts in
the mid 20th Century.Architect Ettore Sottsass designed lines for
Bitossi from 1950 through the 1990s. Other notable designers include Marco
Zanini, George Sowden, Piero Fornasetti, Karim Rashid, and Arik Levy. Sadly most
vintage pieces are marked with only a hand-inscribed style number and Italy.
