Arketipo – New Creations showcasing at IMM Cologne
February 25, by
Arketipo continues its cooperation with designers such as Gino Carollo, Leonardo Dainelli, Mauro Lipparini and
Giuseppe Viganò. The brand's latest issues will be exhibited at IMM Cologne in January 2019.
Different materials provide new geometrics, dynamic surfaces and multifaceted shapes like diamonds. It is an
interpretation of style that gives a futuristic and high-tech feel to a variety of striking forms.
Unexpected and metaphorical, SMOOTH OPERATOR by Giuseppe Viganò is a sofa that seduces. It uses a sophisticated
language to express the contemporary trends in dynamic conviviality. A refined interpretation of an aesthetic ideal of
beauty, thanks to the special mechanism in the backrest the cushions can accompany the movements of the body.
The iconic BARRACUDA armchair by Giuseppe Viganò, the indisputable bestseller for ARKETIPO Firenze, is enhanced with armrests to maximize comfort and purpose. Modern, but with an epic and slender look, it is characterized by its backrest in neoprene, a resistant material. Comfortable, elastic and highly resistant, it is worn by scuba divers for their deep-sea adventures. The seat, which at a first glance looks like it is dangling in an empty space, is multi sensorial in its lightness. Barracuda is the perfect synthesis of different explorations.
BROWN SUGAR, designed by Mauro Lipparini, is the new seat system combining transitional style with elements of
softness. The distinctive personality of its design, teamed with the reassuring character of its shapes, give life to a
simple, clean and graphic solution. Attention to detail provides a highly appealing uniqueness, with double stitching
which gives value to the various elements and subtly enhance its shape. Another special peculiarity of this model are the
armrests, monolithic and soft at the same time, extending the sides like a modern short belt. The same armrests can
supply several combinations and in the low-wide-narrow version blend the seat with the backrest.
Dreamlike and eye-catching, the OVERDRIVE swivel armchair, the second piece by Giuseppe Viganò, stands out for its
extremely striking effect. The dynamic diamond-like form, with long proportions, draws inspiration from the fantasy film
world interpreted with a hint of irony. The result is an appealing, must-have object, with a strong character where
harmonious combinations, materials and nuances transcend the contemporary world in order to create a lifestyle
between dreams and provocation.
