AR.CH.IT Luca Cipelletti presents XYZ. A series of solid wood tables and consoles where the focus is on a new and unique join of the bevelled tabletops to slender wooden legs.
XYZ– Architectonic Furniture Made-to-Measure
The xyz project is the result of years of research by AR.CH.IT Luca Cipelletti as part of an architectural and exhibition design approach that considers the design of details as the foundations of the architect’s work. Here the scale is changing, but the products are generated by the same principles as a specific approach to architecture. In this sense, they are the result of a design that is architectonic, even structural: a composition of forms that tends towards synthesis and lasting over time. xyzis a piece of furniture. Conceived as a table, it is also a console, a bench and a nightstand: a family of objects with a common design principle.
levels of interpretation
The name xyz sums up the work on the design of all the products. The focus is on their angle: a modelling of the three-dimensional physical space that leads to the cancellation of the three spatial coordinates xyz. Here the planes meet to achieve the minimum thickness and weight of the material. Objects change according to the observation point, minimizing their three-dimensional presence and reaching the essence of their function and the material they are made of.
The key to the project is the angle / node: a structure that deceives the eye and depending on the perspective makes the products, both surface and legs, appear two-dimensional and always different.
Made out of solid wood, the heaviness of which is lightened thanks to work on the structure, internal and invisible, which makes them look like blades. The tables fly, they clearly show the spatial concept of the project: the meeting of the three axes (xyz) in one point.
xyz is a bespoke service: clients can choose from a wide range of materials and sizes (xyz: length, width, height) according to their needs and wishes.
xyz is a design project that summarizes the work on space, on the deduction of the material, on the point of view, on the perspectives and on the various plans of the object, recurrent themes in the work of Luca Cipelletti.
Made near Milan, in Brianza, by Bassano Arredamenti.
