Enjoying the last days of Summer while autumn is slowly approaching, can you believe it is almost October! Traditionally, October is called woonmaand, translated ‘living month’ in the Netherlands. It is the month that many people start working on their interiors, making last changes and redecorating for the coming winter months. With the current pandemic we really realized the importance of a comfortable home, including the bathroom which have become more important than ever for relaxing.

Wallpaper has always been a product to give any room an instant new feeling and setting the right atmosphere one is aiming for in a relatively fast way. I have introduced the work of antoniolupi design before on the blog, showing different architectural basin solutions, built in shower heads and beautiful basins and sinks in crystalmood.

In this post I want to show you 'Tralerighe' the first collection of wallpaper, a new challenge taken on by antoniolupi that completes the bathroom and a beautiful freestanding sink I was introduced to during one of the webinars I joined over Summer.


Tralerighe Wallpaper

Tralerighe Wallpaper

Tralerighe is the first collection of wallpaper produced by antoniolupi and designed by Gumdesign, “Tra le Righe”, meaning between the lines, perfectly completes the already well know sinks Bolgheri and Gessati designed by the couple for antoniolupi. The collection consists of 13 designs available in positive and negative.

Antoniolupi about the study behind the lines: “The designs of the ‘Tralerighe’ wallpaper collection are studied on a mathematical algorithm: horizontal, vertical and oblique lines intersect as if they were alive and constantly moving conversing with each other; so that the optical result is not of closure within a pre-established graphical cage, but of openness, designing the space"

"The wallpaper is available in two materials: TNT supported with vinyl finish - suitable for all rooms of the house (dimension: L 60 cm about 198 mq) and fiberglass supported, water-resistant suitable for areas in direct contact with water (dimension: L 90 cm about 279 mq) A few examples pictured also below, see all here at antoniolupi: Tralerighe wallpaper

I really missed travelling this Summer and the different design events throughout the year. Luckily we can stay in touch and updated through the different online activities many designers and companies organize. So also antoniolupi, who organized a few online webinars for the press presenting their new carpets, more in my October post about these, and the brand new freestanding ‘Borghi’ sink together with the designers.

Borghi sink
If you like me love Italy and the flavours and colours of Tuscany you will love the new freestanding Borghi sink. The Borghii sink is made from the combination of two antithetical materials, totally natural cork and Crystalmood. I previously talked about Crystalmood in this article: Cristalmood bringing colour and character to the bathroom. This time the versatile resin is combined with one of the most sustainable materials; cork.

Objects made from Cristalmood weigh about 30% less than those made with solid surfaces and can be combined with the most diverse materials, achieving refined color combinations. Cork is 100% natural, fully biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and recyclable without producing toxic waste. As an innovative and sustainable source, cork has no waste. Besides being fire-retardant, cork does not fear humidity. 

Eco friendly sink
With Borghi a new trend is set! The contrast between Crystalmood and cork in the design turns out in a wonderful designed sink different from all others, a feature for which the Italian bathroom manufacturer is known worldwide for the past seventy years. Borghi is the sink with a natural cork base and a Cristalmood sink, the aesthetic result is completely innovative. 

Sustainability is an important issue also in the design sector and of real importance to antoniolupi, a company sensitive to the theme, is working hard in this direction. Borghi is a totally eco-sustainable sink starting from the base which is made with recycled cork finished by hand to obtain a soft tactile effect.

The washbasin plays with materials, with colours, with textures and above all with contrasts and takes its inspiration from the 'small villages set like stones' on the hills of Tuscany bordered with cypresses The colours take over the landscape: green foliage, ripe grapes, chestnuts and mushrooms, medicinal plants, spices, bitter oranges, lemons. Bucolic references from ancient knowledge” 

In addition to the Natural Cork version, the base of Borghi is also available in a darker Cork version: a dark brown color with a coffee effect. I love how the photo of the Tuscan landscape above has been translated into the many warm nuances of the Borghi sink. A few combinations pictured in this post, have a look at antoniolupi's website for more colour and material combinations of the Borghi sink.
