A true trove of bronze, silver and gold
by Fabian Peters | 3/22/2017
Gold, silver and bronze for fittings at the ISH. Almost enough to give you wings.
Barrel, designed by Carlo Colombo, is one of antoniolupi’s iconic products. First presented back in 2003 in “Sinai” stone, it immediately became one of the company’s bestsellers. It is a gentle, sensual line, with a clearly defined and pure design. A mono
lith hollowed out of stone, a regular and totally exclusive sculpture, the result of complex craftsmanship. In later years a black “mokoka” marble version was launched to be joined, in 2006, by a limited edition extremely elegant amber-colored onyx model.
Our latest idea is to offer this washbasin in Cristalplant, a material that mainly consists of mineral extenders bound to a small percentage of resins. The Cristalplant Barrel thus becomes a more flexible object which can be easily placed in differen
t ambients, suitable for accommodating various styles and customs thanks to the material used and the white color. With Cristalplant, Barrel changes its appearance and method of use, becoming much more accessible in terms of price and weight, whilst still
maintaining its original design.
