Freestanding stone sink, complete with drain pipe fitting and open plug, trap and flexible hose. In 2017, INTROVERSO was selected by Adi Design Index. It is the most prestigious award of the production and design quality of Italian design; a further confirmation of the important work that antoniolupi is doing in recent years.
The shape within the form was the idea that accompanied Paolo Ulian for antoniolupi from the very beginning of this project. A project born by observing the first rough draft of marble sculptures by machine, in which the three-dimensional shape is outlined by a regular series of cuts managed by a numerical controlled machine. Thin strips of marble are formed, whose outer edges once broken, reveal the raw sculpture concealed inside.
The same concept and process are used in the realization of the Introverso sink: a white Carrara marble block, machined and lightened by a series of cuts that reveal its internal core, the shape inside the shape. The marble block loses its monolithic appearance and is transformed into something ethereal, transparent, and like it is enclosing a core secret.
A soul that can remain hidden, leaving a glimpse of the subtle play of light, or it may be slowly unveiled by breaking the edges of the blades.
