As if the heptagonal shape (that’s 7-sided for the not-so mathematically inclined) of this tabletop is doesn't set the Terra apart enough, Italian designer Antonio Forteleoni plays the unusual scheme a step further by setting off the polished powder-coated surface on 3 tubular legs. A crisp profile that works all the right angles, Terra is part the outdoor-indoor collection produced by Atipico, aiming to update the “Made in Italy” aesthetic with a contemporary slant.
“We stand out for continuous research on materials,” says Gianluca Corbari, co-founder with his brothers Enrico and Maurizio and creative director of Atipico. “But also the traditional ones like wood, iron and ceramics, reinterpreted with a contemporary language. We’re trying to bring out the soul of the materials.”
The upstart Milan-based brand proudly labels its offerings “strictly made in Italy” and works with many designers who seek out the company for its passion for design. Young talents like Federico Angi, Fabio Meliota, Antonino Sciortino, Carlo Trevisani and Zaven “know about historical techniques and Italian productive culture,” says Corbari. “I ask them to find that detail, that extra stroke that makes the difference, but without making a product that is over-designed.”
