Thanks to Carl Sagan’s latest documentary series on the cosmos, no one can deny that space is unparalleled in its natural beauty and the sense of wonder it instills in all of us, and so the intrepid designers at Marca Corona have recreated the organic swirling dusty patterns of the surface of many planets in our solar system and adapted them for the new porcelain Planet series. Our fascination with space started with the night sky and was nourished by healthy weekly doses of Ms. Frizzle’s Magic School Bus and Bill Nye the Science Guy.
For most of us the fascination continues each night when we look to the heavens. Unfortunately for people in places like Paris and Shanghai, they may not be able to appreciate our solar system’s jaw-dropping beauty, but then again this may only enhance their desire. You don’t need to break out your nerdy telescope to see the beauty in the detail of this series. To satisfy such urges, choose from any of the five soothing undulating shades of fine full-body porcelain stoneware. If you have always dreamt of being the ruler of your own planet, now is your chance to design the look. Ice Queen’s rule on a frosty tundra of, well, bright white Ice.
If you want your domain to have a bit more warmth, perhaps the Grey, Tobacco or Dark are more up your atmospheric alley. Not only is the Planet series stunning, but you will be through the roof about the time it takes to maintain your floors. Porcelain stoneware is way easier to clean than space debris and you can do it without worrying about your oxygen levels. You can’t be the first person to walk on the moon, but you can certainly be the first person in your neighborhood to walk on the Planets (series). Cool, soothing neutrals make that same sense of calm and wellbeing wash over us that we get each time we take a second to appreciate the night skies.
