Designers Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci first met at Florence’s prestigious Faculty of Architecture in the early 1980’s. Following their time studying together, and a shared interest in drama and theatre, they founded Archirivolto Design in Colle Val D'Elsa. For the past 15 years, working with major design brands including Bonaldo, Pedrali and Segis, this Tuscan design studio has heavily concentrated on the link between innovation in material and construction and the way in which a product can work for a consumer.
It is no coincidence then that the studio found itself hard at work with the innovators of outdoor furniture, Vondom. Pezzetina, is their second collaboration with Vondom and follows their first collection Fiesta, potentially the worlds coolest illuminated bar.
Presented at imm Cologne in January, Pezzetina is a collection inspired by nature in its form, celebrating the bloom and opening petals of a flower whilst utilizing innovation in material construction. Archirivolto Design’s move away from geometric forms reimagines the relationship between human engagement with the natural environment, fostering a balance between technology and nature in the built environment.
Pezzetina is available now from KE-ZU.
