Working with Arketipo is always a collaboration. But for the design house Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, this is a special one.
“Undoubtedly our collaboration was born from the friendship with Lorenzo and from the confidence in his energy and his desire to collaborate with the designer in an absolutely friendly and constructive manner.”
A mindful approach that is sewed into the fabric of each and every design that goes from the design board to production.
«Where design can live and function can play»
Moodboard, and preliminary studies of Self Control sofa ( 2018) design by Ludovica & Roberto Palomba.
Self Control, sofa 2019 design by Ludovica & Roberto Palomba
Self Control for example, finds limits. Where design can live and function can play; Self Control is the example we all need to help us understand this subtle and powerful design concept. As a sofa it embodies technical discipline as well as design that matches a distinctive embodiment of Arketipo.
Here, you will find low backs, curved lines, swooping drops and an illusion of a floating space.
One such vision and execution is another stand-out design by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Starman. A sofa design that is distinctly about, imposition. A theory of disturbing elements of the natural order to create something new.
Starman is playing with aggressive and powerful contours, designed to impose their being in a unique space.
