A product of Pauline Deltour’s desire to innovate using traditional materials and geometric forms, Silenzio is a coin tray with a difference. Made from two different shades of cork, its 7 cm depth allows you to empty your pockets into it and still have room to spare. The sound-absorptive properties of cork mean you can flick in your change from range without worrying about waking up the family.

Frenchwoman Pauline Deltour caught the eye of Alessi early in her career, the Italian institution buying her steel-wire paper bin just after she’d finished her studies. Next came a three-year stint at Konstantin Grcic in Munich before she struck out on her own in Paris. Deltour revels in the city’s “disorder”, yet her material-light, minimalist designs speak of someone with a clear, focused mind.
