“Palafitta” is born from an image, from the memory of an architectural typology, from the idea of a simple structure proposed in an equally essential and functional element of furniture. The lines emphasize the architectural aspect of the piece, while the play of media and volumes visually reverts the roles. The three-dimensional elements are separated from one another, such as dropped and suspended at the same time.
The image of the “Palafitta” takes on a strong connotation determined by the importance of the support that deliberately does not hide, but accentuates the original concept. The volumes reveal themselves by taking on a function and separating each other, showing the added value of the entire creation: the flexibility of the piece, the interchangeability of the elements, the movement and the personalization of the object. Studio 14 develops this project in collaboration with Arkof, which presents it among the novelties of the 2017 collection. The Arkof company, with the same interesting furniture as exhibited at the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2017, offers elements that are the representation of their own philosophy, objects to be discovered and the desire to show the fruit of a functional and characterizing design vision .
