Aura and Astro by Marco Piva

A natural element that changes its shape over time, a volume that molds, transforms and recomposes itself to find a definitive image, liquefied but solidified at the same time. The water conditions and its fluid image that describe the concept of Aura and Astro, the two new freestanding sinks designed by Marco Piva.
Cristalmood is an almost magical material” – says Marco Piva – “I wanted to interpret this material by charging it with emotions, I worked on the relationship between the pure geometry of the container and the soft internal shape of the basin”.

Due to the type of processing and the craftsmanship of the production, each product made of Cristalmood is unique and unrepeatable, two sinks won’t never be identical, for slight differences in color, size, and thickness.
Astro and Aura sinks are equipped with LED lighting, are available in 13 Cristalmood colors, the drain is on the floor and the transparent opaque body contains the drain and siphon, hiding them from the outside view. Astro can be combined with a freestanding tap, it also allows you to install a countertop tap on the surface, an important added value for diversified installation needs.

Astro is a freestanding sink designed by Marco Piva for antoniolupi with a rigorous and essential volume. Like an ice cube that slowly melts, an immaterial presence that contains, circumscribes and governs the strength of the purifying element where light plays an important role.The plays of shadows created by the light define the body and the shape of the pelvis.
Aura is a freestanding sink designed by Marco Piva for antoniolupi. A rigorous and essential volume, softened by the translucency of Cristalmood, an absolute parallelepiped, devoid of any ornament, whose perfect geometrical shape is “carved out” by the force of the water which, drop by drop, generates the lowering of the Aura basin. The organic shape develops seamlessly as it does for natural phenomenon.
