Antoniolupi Flow Marble Sink
June 11, 2023
Antoniolupi presents Flow, a sink shaped by the force and fluidity of water whose form it naturally takes, creating a symbiotic relationship between machine and worked material.
Flow was designed by Paolo Ulian and is an experimental object in marble. The concept stems from the observation of a particular processing characteristic of the water-jet machine. This machine tends to spontaneously create irregular curvilinear waves in relief on the surface of marble that can ideally resemble the frayed effect of a fabric pleat. Usually, this feature is considered as a defect to be avoided, but from another perspective, it can translate into a virtuous feature and turn into a new aesthetic quality.
Waterjet cutting also offers greater optimization of the material processed, and from a single block of marble, it is possible to obtain three or more sinks of different diameters, one inside the other like matryoshkas and not just one as in traditional processing. Each sink is distinguished by its own special aesthetic that makes it a unique piece, unrepeatable.
During the last Salone del Mobile, Antoniolupi presented his first home collection focused on the living room and bedroom. Elements characterized by the elegant and essential style of the brand have thus created a perfect dialogue between the numerous novelties for the bathroom. Among these was the new Flow basin.
