Folded metal that evokes the Japanese art of origami makes for a strikingly original rocking chair in the Terra series from Italian maker Atipico. Designer Antonino Sciortino trades on his early training as a blacksmith by juxtaposing a sculptural tubular metal frame with a folded iron surface in this eye-catching update. Finished with an impervious powder-coat in a selection of neutral shades and suitable for use both in interiors and outdoors.
32.5" h x 25.75" w x 37.25" d (83x66x95cm)

“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.”
