If we were to tell you that we found the inspiration behind this design from a computer game, what would you say? Soap bubbles perhaps? Both? Design has a way of playing with irony, using it and transforming what is, at first, a strange idea into something tangible, new, different. That is Bubble Bobble, inspired by the unusual and with a sense of irony. Recognisable by the three glass spheres of different sizes and available in two distinct finishes, they are supported by thin metal strips, playing with natural light between the spheres artificially created by the shapes. It’s an emotional construction, one that senses and creates a room’s ambience with ease and elegance, all thanks to a play of a few curious minds.
The Tuscan company has chosen the name Arketipo (from the Greek archè: origin, tipos: model) precisely because it embodies the concept of originality, an idea that every designer aspires to and which is achieved only thanks to a solid company.
For Arketipo Firenze, design is life, a desire for stylistic transgression and the desire to express one's values through shapes and materials. Design is an essential value that makes each product unique and precious like a work of art.
The Italian spirit is always present in the aesthetic choices as a distinctive sign of modernity, but also of continuity with the archetypal elements of the past.
