Names can give away certain attributes, the Glorious then by Manzoni & Tapinassi is one that cannot and does not disappoint. One that brings lightness and almost ethereal arrangement to the centre ground of furniture making showcasing that strong need not be large but a concept that plays in the grey spaces of design. Available in Moka Oak or sucupira wood, the Glorious understands that what sets this design apart is not only the mixture of materials, the optional draw being available in vegetable tanned leather for example, but the metal work that is incorporated in the legs, setting it apart making it look delicate in a time of statements. The Glorious does understated to a plomb.
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.
