In many ways, the collection is the most recent manifestation of the designer’s love affair with aerospace engineering, a field in which he’s formally trained. Borrowing from aeronautical concepts, he has utilized the most advanced technologies to craft the collection of blacker-than-black furniture thats super strong and light-weight —including a desk, stool, end table and cocktail table—made entirely of carbon fiber.
TECHNOLOGY MEETS ART
And yet, the aesthetic presence of each piece differs dramatically from that of machine-age aircraft or supersonic jets. “My fascination with flight and technology influenced my material selection, fabrication techniques and, to a certain extent, the formal qualities of these pieces,” says Antonioni.
DRIVEN BY PASSION
“This collection is a way for me to satisfy my inclination to advance my field - to experiment. Carbon22 isn’t driven by the demands of the marketplace. It’s driven by passion.” Each Carbon22 object within the collection, produced in limited numbers, is signed by the designer.
