Special Projects. Throughout the year, House of Today ideates and curates special projects, covering a range of topics and causes. The special projects are aligned with our mission, to foster a sustainable design culture globally. 

“With this collection, I channeled a sense of playful lightness, merged with humor, which I believe should be part of every home." shares Lina. “What makes the series of ceramic pieces unique is the spontaneity in my approach while experimenting with a raw material that is generous and accepting of the vast possibilities it can be molded into,” she adds.

The quirky pieces, varying in different types of clay and glaze, embody fun and fantasy, complemented with delicate flowers in different hues suggesting different emotions. Hints of humor are discernable. True to

her character, she channels her passion for pottery without constraints.
