Double recognition for Gallotti&Radice, which at the prestigious Archiproducts Design Award 2023, was honored in the “Furniture” categories with Selce and “Finishes” with Pleiadi, both projects designed by Studiopepe, which was awarded “Designer of the Year.”
SELCE – THE ESSENCE OF MARBLE
Selce is a collection of single-material coffee tables whose personality is expressed through a play of contrasts made of finishes, volumes and heights that allow the creation of geometric and dynamic compositions. A tribute to the essence of the natural world that is celebrated with the marbles chosen.
Ceppo dei Volpi is a brecciated marble, naturally textural and rich in warm tones from red to pink, Ceppo Antico is a clastic sedimentary stone, a unique and elegant material that presents a range of gray colors in all shades, and finally the natural brushed Travertino Romano: a beige, yellow or pinkish limestone marble, characterized by a porous structure and irregular striations, known for its beauty and durability.
Three finishes and three sizes capable of giving coffee tables a strong aesthetic and visual in which the raw material is the undisputed protagonist.
PLEIADI – THE VALUE OF COTTON
Pleiadi is a decorative wall covering that stands out for its aesthetic impact and sustainable and ecological approach as well as its high sound absorption performance.
It is a system composed of bricks made from cotton linters, short downy hairs that surrounds the cotton seed after it is first ginned, and clays. Obtained through an artisanal cold-processing process, it offers a new life and functionality to what is generally considered waste from cotton production.
Available in “nature” color, a finish inspired by the natural world, also obtained in a handcrafted way by mixing natural earths and without the addition of artificial dyes or mordants. The individual elements, characterized by raised textures, can be freely combined with a uniform repetition or through a freer combination depending on the positioning of the individual tiles. Having the advantage of being breathable, they are able to provide high levels of sound absorption at extremely low thicknesses.
