With the Arca series of centerpieces, fabled Carrara marble takes shape as a modern sculpture-for-living. Classical inspiration infuses Milanese designer Carlo Trevisani's minimalist forms, each one unique in the esteemed material's individual mottling and tones. A striking centerpiece or fruit bowl or even an unusually luxurious catchall for personal objects. Italian maker Atipico melds its modernist aesthetic with the renowned Italian-made tradition.

“We stand out for continuous research on materials,” says Gianluca Corbari, co-founder with his brothers Enrico and Maurizio and creative director of Atipico. “But also the traditional ones like wood, iron and ceramics, reinterpreted with a contemporary language. We’re trying to bring out the soul of the materials.”
The upstart Milan-based brand proudly labels its offerings “strictly made in Italy” and works with many designers who seek out the company for its passion for design. Young talents like Federico Angi, Fabio Meliota, Antonino Sciortino, Carlo Trevisani and Zaven “know about historical techniques and Italian productive culture,” says Corbari. “I ask them to find that detail, that extra stroke that makes the difference, but without making a product that is over-designed.”
