Created by Italian designer Federico Angi for Atipico, this seating collection demonstrates the powerful graphic effect that the simplest geometry can impress. “Iperbole” is deceptively simple; black rectilinear frames made from stained solid ash wood support the user with the subtle addition of a curved cut at the back. However, this detail is more than decoration – it is an integral piece of the system of interlocking joints that hold everything together. This unexpected asymmetry leads the eye throughout a dynamic composition rarely seen in projects whose main motivations are “simplicity and economy.” Atipico, an exlusively Italian brand, firmly believes in the influence of everyday objects on our very being: “Every object is contextualized to last in time, to stir the emotions: if merely displayed they would only lose their poetry. And so they pose and wait, dialogue with the others, a study in consistency and simplicity: underneath there is a common thread that unites them.” Angi’s imaginative furniture collection was a part of the group’s exhibition at the last Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Lizzie

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
