During the Cersaie fair 2021 antoniolupi presented "Anima Liquida" by Giorgio Rava. A freestanding sink in natural stone that restores primordial value to water. Stone and water. A sculpture sink made entirely of natural stone, where even the traditional tap disappears to become a cylindrical stone command. A progressive and silent function that restores all its primordial power to water. The result is a stone column that recalls the archetype of the baptismal font.
A project designed primarily to stimulate reflection on life and man's relationship with water. To bring the daily bathing ritual back to its ancestral value and thus rediscover a connection with our most authentic side.
“As lymph through the body, water carves the stone, bearer of life”, tells Giorgio Rava. “Anima Liquida is a reflection on water and man that takes us back to the origins of life to remind us of what we are made of. It is meant to free water from the yoke of technology and from the many devices that determine its performance, witnesses to the blind human ambition to dominate elements”.
With Anima Liquida a new chapter is added to the research on materials conducted by antoniolupi. After reinventing marble and cork and developing new materials, such as Flumood, Cristalmood and Colormood, antoniolupi designs another sink in natural stone. A choice that confirms that the Tuscan company has an unstoppable disposition for experimentation. But also, a confirmation of antoniolupi's attention to the environment. The sink Anima Liquida is made entirely of Ceppo di Grè, a resistant and durable grey stone typical of Lombard architecture.
