The newly built Saluti da Stampalia Suites is a complex of 7 ultra-stylish suites of unpretentious style and elegance located in Astypalea, an Aegean island that belongs administratively to the Dodecanese, but geographically and culturally it is located on the border between the Dodecanese and the Cyclades, in Greece. The period with the most intense sign that survives to this day is of Venetian rule. The Venetians remained from 1207 to 1269 and then years after the occupation of the Turks, Italians reoccupied the island until 1948. The name and the sleek branding elements were being inspired by the vintage postage paraphernalia of the Italian correspondence.
This pleasantly bulky design and the texture of the ceramic stamp are being inspired by the popular Cycladic architecture which is characterized by the strict geometry of its buildings, the white color, and the plasticity. Wrapped in a pale white paper and tied with a native chord and a sticker on it, this ceramic stamp is an elegant part of an identity that exudes its own distinct confidence and clarity. It is given as a precious present after the stay of the visitors. A hello, a farewell, a good-bye after the new welcoming.
