RAMSES, TETI and CHEOPE

Teti, Cheope and Ramses are the three new washbasins designed by AMDL CIRCLE for antoniolupi; authentic examples of superior craftsmanship

RAMSES TETI CHEOPE

AMDL CIRCLE designs three new washbasins for antoniolupi, true works of high craftsmanship. The meeting between AMDL CIRCLE and antoniolupi takes shape in the game with classic and noble materials such as bronze and wood, assembled through design solutions that draw on ancient and valuable techniques, giving rise to column washbasins with sculptural shapes, precious and unique. Fabric ropes and staples connect wooden strips, while cast bronze is shaped into a conical and grooved shape. Ramses, Teti, and Cheope, as ancient monuments, emerge from the ground and take on the value of autonomous works.

RAMSES

RAMSES is a column basin where the dark bronze of the top is combined with the black finish oxidized effect of the wooden elements that, vertically arranged and connected with fabric strings, make up the stem.

antoniolupi RAMSES

A precious wooden slatted surface that wraps around, protects, shelters, and guards, a sink in dark patinated bronze or stainless steel. The basin materials converse with the tones of Frassino Moka wooden elements to confer absolute elegance and preciousness to the ensemble, which lies in the name and derives precisely from the excellence of the material. Ramses is a symbol of craftsmanship generated from the attention to detail of its creator and from the ability of antoniolupi to interpret every material at its best. To enhance its essence, to convey value, to redefine its use even in unconventional contexts.

RAMSES
antoniolupi RAMSES
A sequence of slender elements juxtaposed to each other, some of which are aesthetically paired by small “ties” expressing unity and cohesion, a slight protrusion to accompany the body of the sink that widens from the smaller base to the larger basin. Ramses grows like a natural organism that man has reinterpreted by breaking down its essential elements and then retying them with new expressive potential.

TETI

TETI column basin is made of walnut wood and steel. The walnut components, arranged vertically, cover the entire volume of the basin, and are connected to each other by means of metal clips. The wood, ancient and precious, is worked and sewn in a modern solution, which tells a story of tradition and craftsmanship.

TEIT
Two materials coming together, two worlds finding fulfillment in a project that expresses industrial capability and artisanal attention to detail to create a mythological object born from the creativity of its creator and the courage of antoniolupi in accepting challenges. There are many themes and values in the freestanding sink Teti, which indeed arises from the encounter of different entities. There is the theme of dialogue and the coupling of two materials different in characteristics and processing types, there is the explicit declaration of this encounter, there is the strength and tension expressed in a functional detail that becomes the distinctive feature of the project, becoming aesthetic and decoration.
TETI

A round basin in AISI 316 stainless steel, pure, clear, absolute, hygienic, and unalterable. A column in Dark-Stained Chestnut or Canaletto walnut wood, composed of vertical modules held together by a metal “stitch.” Slats that run along the entire height of the body and open up like in a tree, assuming a trapezoidal shape in the part that covers the sink, to wrap around, defend, and support the steel and the precious content it holds. An image that expresses all the natural strength of wood, which protects like bark the vital sap represented by water. But also, a sign that implies the possibility for humans to intervene with an intertwining that recomposes the original matter into a new form.

CHEOPE

The third washbasin CHEOPE, designed by AMDL CIRCLE, is a freestanding bronze sculpture with a golden patina, made with the casting technique. The washbasin sits on top of the conical volume, which tapers progressively towards the base. The shape originated by the fusion increases the plastic effect, enhanced by the incidence of light on the bronze.

It takes its name from the Egyptian sovereign because its brilliance immediately evokes the preciousness of masks and ornaments, the charm of sacred objects, the majesty of pyramids, all projects and artifacts that, at different scales, interpret the need for symbolic representation, the desire to assert prestige, the ability to create beauty. Cheope is the floor-standing washbasin in satin or dark patinated bronze that arises from the superposition of concentric rings, increasingly larger, which, rising, progressively outline the volume of the washbasin. Like an inverted stepped pyramid.
CHEOPE

An ancient material, a reference to a distant memory, for a contemporary project that explores, as antoniolupi has done several times with different materials, the theme of overlapping layers. Pure geometric figures that repeat to give life to an all-round object that captures attention and fits into very different style contexts. Gravity and lightness chase each other in a sort of tornado, made of infinite reflections, nuances, and chiaroscuro, flashes of light and light shadows. A precious object, a vortex of strength and energy that welcomes water to enhance the metal that contains it and vice versa.
