antoniolupi VORTICE - Moving volume
design Paolo Ulian
Vortice is the new free standing Carrara marble sink designed by Paolo Ulian for antoniolupi. A new project that is part of the research traced with Intreccio (2018) to deepen the theme of contemporary matter, to investigate the complex dialogue between immobility and dynamism, between solidity and lightness, between reality and appearance. In Vortice, matter takes shape through human thought and the use of advanced processing technologies. A project that best expresses this virtuous cycle between nature, man and machine. Vortice has a small base and develops upward through a revolving movement generating fluid and sinuous geometries accentuated by the unique veins and the plastic like behavior of the material. The result is an iconic image with a strong expressive charge that becomes the fulcrum, an actual vortex of the space.
A moving volume that connects man and nature. In addition to water, which has always been at the center of every antoniolupi project, air is the other great protagonist of Vortice. Air, that is represented in the sink by the evident sensation of lightness and fluctuation that the superimposed but staggered stone layers are able to generate. Vortice is a sink with a sculptural yet light presence, it is a domestic micro-architecture that refers in shape and proportions to the new towers that are transforming metropolises of the world while remaing light. Vortice is an emblem of uniqueness and the typical Italian know-how. It is made from a single block of marble is divided into 16 layers. Vortice is composed of concentric rings overlapped in a staggered way. It drastically reducing the waste produced by the cut.

A bathtub able to take center stage but also to be set aside against a wall, an enveloping volume with an egg shape that ergonomically protects the body. Eclipse is a refined interpretation of an organic style, a contemporary expression of relaxation, an image of design beautified today by the new version made of Carrara marble.Marbled Eclipse
