Adell - incisioni laser ML Engraving

Communicating is an important key of our work. We tell stories with our textures and transform surfaces to evoke tactile and visual sensations.
And that's what we did for Adell, a chair from the well-known Italian brand Arper, which we present in this new case study: we enhanced the surface with a texture that accentuates its natural element.

This project, made of polypropylene obtained from post-industrial waste, focuses on the delicate elegance of the leaf: from the welcoming shape of the shell, to the colour palette and the surface texture, composed of irregular ribbing, which covers both the interior and exterior of the product.
