26/06/2020 - Bolgheri
is the new freestanding sink by antoniolupi
that reflects the flavors and colors of the Tuscan tradition. An object with essential geometry and an innovative consistency. Bolgheri is born from the combination of two antithetical materials, totally natural cork and Cristalmood which is the result of the most advanced technology.
With Bolgheri antoniolupi breaks down the existing boundaries between different materials, creating an evocative object that draws inspiration from the 'small villages set like stones' on the hills of Tuscany and from where the object takes its name.
'Bolgheri is part of a much larger and more complex project that antoniolupi has developed with Gumdesign, we can say that this sink is only a preview' - declares Andrea Lupi CEO of the antoniolupi family run company - 'Bolgheri is innovative, eco-friendly and distinguishes the whole new 2020 project '.
'The colors cross the magnetism of authenticity, leading to the clinking of glasses, to smiles, to travel, to us' - tell the designers Gabriele Pardi and Laura Fiaschi of Gumdesign - 'Small villages set like stones on the hills bordered with cypresses tell of ancestral roots, of chivalrous deeds and of Boccaccian novels.. The colors take over the landscape: green foliage, ripe grapes, chestnuts and mushrooms, medicinal plants, spices, bitter oranges, lemons. Bucolic references from ancient knowledge”.
Bolgheri is the sink with a natural cork base and a Cristalmood sink. The washbasin plays with materials, with colors, with textures and above all with contrasts. Cork is a natural, fire-retardant, elastic, light element that does not fear humidity. Cristalmood is a transparent, colorful and resistant resin developed specifically by antoniolupi to create sinks that can be combined with the most diverse materials, creating refined color combinations while offering all the essential functions.
Sustainability is an important and very topical issue also in the design sector and antoniolupi, a company sensitive to the topic, is working hard in this direction. Bolgheri is a totally eco-sustainable sink starting from the base which is made with recycled cork finished by hand to obtain a soft tactile effect. Cork is a light, flexible, resistant, recycled and 100% recyclable material. Natural cork is recomposed by using only natural resins. The importance of this project is also linked to solidarity and the implementation of circular economy processes.
Cristalmood also has an eco-sustainable value. Despite being an industrial product, it is durable over time and recyclable: it is durable over time as it is restorable and resistant so we can consider it a type of eco-sustainable material. In addition to the Natural Cork version, the base of Bolgheri is also available in the Toasted Cork version: a dark brown color with a coffee effect.
