Design: Manzoni e Tapinassi

If design was a fixed concept, then Nelson may never have been made for it would have been the conformist who’d have said, “tables should never have spaces in the top!” That which renders Nelson unique is that which renders all design unique: freedom to try new things. In this case, all elements of the structure are joined together with an intrinsic yet swooping metal structure whilst the tops, made of wood and leather combine to give dramatic and irregular geometric forms. Again, Arketipo doesn’t offer the ordinary but wants to play within the lines of what is possible and understands what the traditions offer; vegetable tanned leather, a traditional Tuscan material, is used in the Nelson design, providing different colours and shades.
