Elegant, contemporary and vibrant with reflections. Able to enhance simple and linear or complex shapes as well as smooth or articulated surfaces, enveloping them and enhancing their three-dimensional shape. The new finish developed by antoniolupi for Flumood gives substance to the volumes giving them a feeling of precious solidity. The objects change their appearance because some details become highlighted, acquiring a new identity thanks to the alternation of colors which embellish their iconic image with a new and sparkling look.
A special coating with metal powder, a technologically advanced process that allows the deposition of real metal microparticles on the surface. A spray application that requires a specific know-how that is in the DNA of antoniolupi. A process that allows to make the finish homogeneous, covering every little detail. A technology that gives a resistant and refined armor to the elements made of Flumood.
From the natural uniqueness of marble to the versatility of an artificial material without distorting the essence of the project, without losing the elegance of the gesture and the proportional balance all together. A change of material that enhances the concept of the project by validating the initial choices. Plissè is the freestanding washbasin designed by Paolo Ulian and produced by antoniolupi originally in marble and now also available in the Flumood version. It is not just a new version but an approach that overturns creativity reaching the shape through an opposite process of manufacturing. If on the one hand the grooves of the marble are obtained through subtraction, in which part of the material is removed, now the same grooves that draw the edge and the body of the piece are generated by a special mold in which the material fills in all the spaces.
The result is a delicate and apparently casual pattern, an explicit reference to the textile world from which the project takes its origin, a surface that seems to move lightly thanks to the variation of light and shadow determined by the relief effect. A three-dimensional shape embellished in this version by the intentional irregularity of the grooves that refers to the idea of an artisinal production made of unique and unrepeatable pieces.
