Paris Event Center
ALPI continues in Paris its path to Architect @ Work - one of the main events in Europe dedicated to updating for designers and professionals - presenting a selection of collections created in collaboration with international designers. A @ W is an exclusive exhibition format for innovative products selected by a technical committee in order to offer a high-level review.
The company has always stood out for its ability to combine fine craftsmanship with high technological innovation. The ALPI collections are in fact the result of a constant search for new material and chromatic combinations through a refined production process. The company offers infinite design potentials through a unique variety in terms of wood essences, producing both colors and veins of natural woods and creating patterns that cannot be found in nature, and thus responding to every type of creative need.
On the occasion of Architect @ Work Paris, ALPI selected some of its most important collections - the perfect mix of technology and creativity - created together with prestigious names in the design world.
Among these, the recent collaborations for the FuoriSalone 2019 with Martino Gamper and Piero Lissoni, the company's art director. On the one hand, Martino Gamper wanted to create a new essence that does not exist in nature to push the boundaries of experimentation ever further, giving life to the wood "Gamperana Triplex"; on the other, Piero Lissoni has investigated the possible expressions that natural wood such as cherry can have, reinterpreting its essence in a more contemporary key.
Alongside these innovations, the company will be present with other collections of highly prestigious wooden surfaces: from the polychromatic points of the re-edition of the first wood made by ALPI for Atelier Mendini in 1991, Pointillisme COL and B / N by Atelier Mendini with Alex Mocika, to the charm of clouds transformed into graphic signs in the Cloudy wood by GamFratesi, to arrive at the famous wood ALPI Sottsass Red by designer Ettore Sottsass.
