The material connection between Mutaforma and Antolini
Stratospherica is the quality and strength of a priceless material connection made by stratified, tangible and intangible elements of nature and design. Thanks to modern technology, these timeless elements appear forever contemporary. Inlays, connections and multi-material grafts are the focus of the collection. The deep and ambitious link between the superb natural stone of Antolini and the exclusive glass material of Mutaforma holds passion at its core.
Stratoshericacombines layers of discipline, research, purpose, desire, and innovation that characterize two daring and forward-thinking companies like Antolini and Mutaforma. Stratosherica is the area where the greatest innovations of the 21st century will come to life at the intersection of nature and technology. Stratosherica is a firm belief in enhancing an ancient body of exquisite stone with precious particles of the future. Stratosherica is the appreciation of inlay through an intimate relation between materials that illuminate a unique, tangible energy. Stratosherica is a dazzling and eclectic celebration of art, technology and nature. Stratoshericais colours, patterns and technical research; stratified images from the arts, history, design and nature, made contemporary by modern technology. Stratoshericais the all-Italian integration of manufacturing, craftsmanship, design expertise and production.
Stratosherica collection includes 14 designs, created by Alessandro La Spada. Each design is a perfect match between natural stones – carefully selected by Antolini – and geometric, organic and artistic decorations realized with Mutaforma material.
After being modeled, each stone slab is inlaid with tiny TILLA,® glass-coloured picotesserae, (the smallest is just 2,5 mm wide) beautified with metal foil. The reflected light creates evocative compositions. The use of techniques such as high precision sandblasting and laser marking further defines the surface. Materials convey warm, tactile sensations and enhance the matt/ polished contrasts of stone and glass. The exclusive technologies used in their production ensure the slabs are fit for both residential and commercial use.
Patterns designed by La Spada are versatile, to cater for book-matched or continuous layouts.
