In these days the Danish brand Menu launches their Spring Summer 2015 collection. As usual the colors and shapes of products are soft and minimal, where geometrical purity, uncomplicated naturalness and a sense of cool and calm are the key players, as says the brand’s literature.
At table with Fabrica — Fabrica designs for Atipico a collection of items for a multicultural table. The table nowadays is a melting pot of different cultures, customs and traditions. The contemporary palate seeks increasing involvement in multiethnic culinary experiences and the dining table is the physical space for meetings and exchanges. This is the driving concept behind A Table, a new collection of objects and accessories for the table – plates, bowls, glasses, baskets, carafes, cutting boards, cutlery and linen – designed by Fabrica for Atipico and to be previewed at Maison et Objet from 23 to 27 January 2015.
Crafted with great care throughout the production process, A Table represents Italian savoir-faire with the added creative touch of the young designers of Fabrica who took their inspiration from countries such as China, Egypt, England, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Morocco and Scotland. Every object is also characterised by a symbol denoting the country of inspiration, a crown for England, an ideogram for China and Japan, a renaissance lily for Italy. In the linen the various symbols come together to form a single one, creating a visual representation of the global and multicultural nature of the collection.
The formal research and the use of simple materials makes these products aesthetically pure and timeless. Once again Fabrica's team has done a great job. Well done!
