ALPI SOTTSASS RED
Wooden wall tiles
At the beginning of the 1980s, Ettore Sottsass and ALPI began what was to become a profound and close collaboration. The ALPIwood surfaces became an instrument for the master'sartistic design, who redefined and reworked the material through his own extroverted and ductile language and his creative energy. In this way an innovativepattern was born which Sottsass first used in the 1985 Memphis collection and then for later works.
Sottsass's design, in the four colors of red, orange, brown and grey, now forms part of the extensive range of ALPI woods. These ALPISottsass woods recapture the colors of natural woods, accentuating their value and exalting their texture through the distinct markings of the veining, evoking the unusual and irreverent combinations of the language of the master.
Light, material and color come together in the design and thinking of Ettore Sottsass to create dynamic connections between visual art and design, introducing a potentially infinite range of possibilities and a design style that perfectly distinguishes this collection realized for ALPI.
