Abstract

Antiche Tentazzine’s Italian footprint is ubiquitous–from product and equipment to its very owners. Prevalent in its unmistakably Tuscan style are the shades of terra-cotta, the choice of tiles, and its overall run-down appearance.

We reformulated the concept as a contemporary abstraction by using arches, a quintessentially ancient and ever-prominent feature of Italian architecture.

The spanish roof tiles are integral to the aesthetic DNA in a bifold manner: they are broken —signalling the passage of time—and their function has been reinterpreted as lighting. Curves, tiles and vegetation were all taken into account when designing the artifacts.

The arches are treated with imitation golden paint, and the surfaces filling them are covered with an Arabesque-themed mesh.

The nightly image underscores the arches as the very essence of the project, while the mesh in the bar is reminiscent of ancient Roman arches. All historical elements were playfully recast in a contemporary light.
