Aliantedizioni Fungus has Borealis, a series of tables designed by Alessandro Loschiavo and Marco Paiani, inspired all'Armillaria Borealis, 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 mounted without the need for any foreign element thanks to an interlocking system with minimum tolerances. On the contrary to what happened in the past, acrylics used are recyclable today thanks to a chemical process which allows the production of new objects.
The photos that accompany the launch of the tables family were taken by Samantha Acciuffi in daytime urban environments that enhance the effect of 'ice' and the transparency of the acrylic materials thanks to the contrast with asphalt plaster tones and the various environments.
The resulting images resemble the suspended atmospheres of Edward Hopper's paintings and their characteristic oblique light cuts and the strong diagonal shadows.
Fungus Borealis intends to be a homage to Shiro Kuramata (1934-1991) and its research with the full acrylic.
