Freestanding marble washbasin
antoniolupi looks to surprise it’s audience through a new challenge with white Carrara marble, a core material, ancient and multifaceted, interpreted in accordance with the designer Paolo Ulian. Ulian was able to shape the material and reinvent it to create new highly innovative and contemporary objects.
After the Introverso basin, Paolo Ulian interprets the marble in a more sophisticated way. Technology meets nature, evolution keeps memory alive, the project allows you to tell a story. The form is generated by subtraction as in a sculpture, ancient and contemporary at the same time.
Matter, the oldest, meets modern technology to perpetrate the water ritual. The drop that draws on the surface concentric shapes now "digging" the matter irregularly but perfect at the same time. Perfect cuts, mechanical milling, the ability to extract from matter its essence through the comparison of perfect surfaces and linear geometries.
Controverso springs from a thought, from action and transforms the product into an experience. A marble block is crossed by the milling machine and then interpreted by man to create different shapes.
A proposal that comes from respect for nature shared by Paolo Ulian and antoniolupi, a path with marble in different collections that fit into a path traced by masters that have always interpreted this noble material.
Controverso is a marble monolith of geometrical shape, squared, which is processed to detonate all its inherent strength. A strong and delicate gesture at the same time, an interpretation of the creative act that meets production, a sink that fits into contemporary environments but also in different contexts.
