For Arketipo, design is life. Their stylistic transgression and the desire to express its values through never original shapes and materials are what make this Tuscan-based company unique. The name Arketipo was chosen because it contains the idea of originality, of a distinctive and refined model. And their stunning dining tables are no different – each table is a study of craft, design and engineering, combining to bring balance.
DISTINCTIVE DINING TABLES
Technology and art fuse seamlessly to produce the Avalon Dining Table's striking design. Mighty slabs of iron are contoured by means of segmented plane geometry, with concave and convex curvilinear forms and a sequence of boldly dovetailed gestures that define the table's base. Designed by Mauro Lipparini.
In the Epsilon Dining Table, architecture meets interior home design. The base stands tall and strong, both in design and function while the top is enriched by a play of metal and wood, carving and cutting through the surface following the base setup. The result is an item with a strong dynamic set personality that thrives on individual style and showcases how two design world can combine to make something inspirational and unique. Designed by Manzoni & Tapinassi.
The Oracle Dining Table has been described as an 'illusion', a 'law bending structure of interior physics' and even 'a center point'. The base is a complex piece of manufacturing, three metallic circles that meet at different angles proving that elegance can be art and that luxury can push boundaries. Designed by Gino Carollo.
MEET THE DESIGNERS
A leader and innovator in the style that has been called "natural minimalism", Mauro Lipparini's extensive work in the field of industrial design includes home and office furnishings, textiles and other products created for a host of firms. His style, rooted in the spare forms and clear, powerful lines that are the hallmarks of minimalism, is imbued with a spirit of joy, a buoyant sense of pleasure and possibility.
