Aliantedizioni presents Fungus Borealis, a series of tables designed by Alessandro Loschiavo and Marco Paiani, inspired by the Armillaria Borealis, a species of mushrooms typical of cold climates.
The Fungus series Borealis consists of removable bases in acrylic transparent full match in three circular planes sized translucent scratch-resistant acrylic.
The structures can be assembled without the need for any foreign elements thanks to an interlocking system with minimum tolerances. Contrary to what happened in the past, the acrylics used are now recyclable thanks to a chemical process that allows the production of new objects.
The photos that accompany the launch of the family of small tables were taken by Samantha Acciuffi in diurnal urban contexts that enhance the 'ice' effect and the transparency of the acrylic materials also thanks to the contrast with the tones of the asphalt and the plaster of the various environments.
The resulting images are reminiscent of the suspended atmospheres of Edward Hopper's paintings and their characteristic slanting light cuts and bold diagonal shadows.
Fungus Borealis intends to be a homage to Shiro Kuramata (1934-1991) and its research with the full acrylic.
