Fida, the bathtub is inspired by nature
designed by Marco Di Paolo
The Fida bathtub is inspired by nature. Fida is a real sculpture carved from a monolith of brushed Vicenza Gray Alpi Stone. The material with a typical light gray color, characterized by the presence of macrofossils, gives the Fida bathtub a modern encounter between material and functionality.
The external line takes its cue from the organic forms of the woods of the rivers, which give the work a feeling of fluidity. The edges are rounded and the lines smooth. The inside of the bathtub is an ergonomic and carefully designed environment to convey safety and comfort.

Fida, designed by Marco di paolo for antoniolupi, fits harmoniously into environments, giving them their own atmosphere. Organic but symmetrical, contained but provocative, it responds to different needs.
“We use natural stone in a conscious and moderate way, – says Marco di Paolo -“because natural stones are available only on a limited extent. The influence of many natural forces formed them through the time and each stone is unique and inimitable, thing that stimulates our creativity“
“antoniolupi has worked with natural stones for many years” – says Andrea Lupi, CEO of the family company – “the particular shape of the tub allows to place the taps at the center, working on the thicknesses at the same time. Thin in the narrower part and wider in the broader part. Plus for a more natural result, we decided to use a sandblasting finish that gives the whole work a more material effect“.

Natural stone given the natural characteristics of the stone, each piece can present veins, tonality differences, mineral intrusion or stucco-work.
The products are hand carved from single stone blocks each presenting a diverse aspect caused by a variety of veins and colors. Such characteristics confirm our use of natural material of which cannot give rise to disputes.
