Primates Kandti Mask are part, together with Mandrillus Mask and Brazza Mask, of the Primates collection by Elena Salmistraro for Bosa, presented at Maison & Objet in 2017. The Primates collection wants to remember the delicate relationship that exists between man and the monkey. The monkey is the animal that most evokes man, in the form of the body, in looks, in movements: a power of resemblance that makes it fascinating and that has inspired the project. The complete collection also includes the Vases that encompass the soul through the details and the colorful textures, with the task of bringing this animal back to our daily environment to seduce us with its vital strength and the Plates that are surrounded by a light frame, featuring six different themes and two different sizes.
