Entirely clad in ALPI wood, the architectural objects were inspired by the brilliant discovery of the Russian chemist Mendeleev, which seem to be ordered according to a compositional formula of chemical element-modules. “With this collection, I want to pay homage to the marvelous synthesis of the Table of Elements, revealing the cosmic fable that lies behind it,” explains Piero Lissoni.
ALPI has decided to issue this special collection in a limited edition, sold exclusively by Galleria Luisa Delle Piane. The Milanese gallery has operated for over 40 years in the field of 20th-century decorative arts and design, expertly interpreting the evolutions of the world of objects and the poetics of their genesis.
The Table of Elements by Piero Lissoni is part of a series of illustrious collaborations with international architects and designers such as Kengo Kuma, Martino Gamper, Atelier Mendini, Gam Fratesi, Ettore Sottsass, Matteo Ragni, Front and Eduardo Campana. “All designers are granted total freedom to interpret our wood in keeping with their own approaches, ” say at ALPI.
The world leader manufacturer of decorative wooden surfaces has been the first enterprise in the world to industrialise the composite wood manufacturing process. “Our primary objective has always been to offer our clients technologically-advanced materials that respect the environment and natural resources. End-to-end control of the wood production chain”.
Every ALPI product is made with poplar, lime wood and ayous from certified and sustainable forests, managed with maximum respect for biodiversity. Direct supervision of the entire supply chain guarantees legal and sustainable sourcing of wood and total product traceability.
