Cersaie 2019 – Elegant patterns of pleated fabrics inspired Italian designer Paolo Ulian to create the PLISSE’ free standing sink for bathroom design brand Antoniolupi. “The volume proposes fabrics’ aesthetics with a vertical pattern, a surface that seems to move lightly thanks to the variation of light and the play of shadows determined by the effect in relief,” explain at Antonio Lupi.

The decorative texture was achieved by working high thicknesses of marble with a water-jet cutting technology; aesthetics based on the spontaneous beauty of imperfection, irregularity of rhythm, and of randomness.
PLISSE’ was born in with a Carrara marble and then realized in Flumood®, a cutting-edge ductile and easy-to-wash material composed, for the most part, from aluminum hydroxide and synthetic resins with low styrene content.
The use of the Antoniolupi-patented material has allowed the creation of the conditions to obtain a result with a strong three dimensional graphic impact, recreating those thin pleats in a new and delicate balance, new aesthetics characterized by the incomparable details of Flumood and deliberately made imperfect by the syncopated rhythm.
