Aliantedizioni presents Fungus Borealis, a series of small tables designed by Alessandro Loschiavo and Marco Paiani, inspired by the Armillaria Borealis, a species of fungi 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 are assembled without the need for any foreign element 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 accompanying the launch of the coffee table family were taken by Samantha Acciuffi in daytime urban contexts that enhance the 'ice' effect and the transparency of the acrylic materials thanks to the contrast with the asphalt and plaster tones of the various settings.
The resulting images recall the suspended atmospheres of Edward Hopper's paintings and their characteristic oblique cuts of light and decisive diagonal shadows.
Fungus Borealis intends to be a homage to Shiro Kuramata (1934-1991) and its research with the full acrylic.
