ALPI introduces the new collections of wood surfaces designed by Martino Gamper and Piero Lissoni, exploration of new interpretations and design potential of wood.
The aesthetic research of ALPI continues this year through new collections of wood surfaces that will be presented during FuoriSalone 2019. An in-depth exploration of the material and its forms, to narrate the beauty of wood and its design potential.
The new ALPI collections are the result of the company’s ability to go beyond the natural identity of wood and to suggest new conceptual and graphic dimensions, in collaboration with international designers, leading to original and exceptionally innovative collections. Suggestions that are developed to create woods with unique tones and patterns, also in novel textures not found in nature, based on workmanship balanced halfway between industry and fine tailoring. ALPI also moves forward with its research on the reproduction of the essence of wood and its most natural characteristics, enhancing the collections with projects that combine evocative atmospheres and tactile effects.
The exploration of new interpretations and design potentialities of wood is the starting point for the latest collaboration with Martino Gamper, who thanks to his background as a cabinetmaker has once again investigated new paths, together with ALPI, to stretch the boundaries of experimentation, creating the new wood “Gamperana Triplex.” Halfway between design and conceptual art, in this project Martino Gamper guides us in the rediscovery of ALPI’s deep experimental roots and vocation for research.
Once again this year the art director of the company, Piero Lissoni, presents his own personal interpretation of wood materials, exploring their characteristic expressive language and enhancing the offerings of the Designer Collection with new proposals. In this case, he has envisioned a special interpretation of cherry wood and the force of its colors, in three gradually shaded tones: Blush Cherry, Honey Cherry and Sienna Cherry.
Exclusive collaborations and projects that become expressions of the profound creative and industrial culture of ALPI, to offer products that respond to the values and necessities of the world of design.
