Design by Marco Acerbis
Born in 1973 Marco Acerbis graduates in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1998. From 1997 to 2004 he lives in London where he works with Lord Norman Foster's Studio. Over these years he collaborates on the construction of an eight story high Medical Research Building at the Imperial College Campus in London. He then becomes Project Architect for Capital City Academy, a 250 meter long High School building for 1400 students which was opened by Tony Blair. He sets up his own practice in Italy in 2004. Fascinated by designing at very different scales he quickly moves on to explore with a constant cross over of skills, ideas, tools and technologies all sorts of subjects to achieve a globally designed space. The Vertigo floor lamp, designed for Fontana Arte in 2004, was immediately acknowledged as a best seller and an icon of our time and is now included in Vitra Design Museum permanent collection. Prius door handle designed for Colombo Design wins a Special Mention at XXI Compasso d'Oro ADI. Kloe Armchair designed for Desalto wins the Red Dot Design Award 2009. Wave tap collection designed for IB Rubinetterie wins the Red Dot Design Award 2015 and the Good Design Award Chicago Athenaeum in 2013. His interest for contemporary issues takes him to be directly involved in sustainable architecture with the design and construction management of Polins which is certified CasaClima Class A+, the best building standard.
Fabric Information: Polypropylene is a material suitable for outdoor furniture because it is easy to clean, treat and wash. It has high flexural strength characteristics: it resists breakage, light, abrasion, does not deform permanently and has an excellent elastic shape recovery. It is water repellent, therefore perfect if installed near swimming pool areas or if exposed to adverse weather conditions.
Maintenance: To keep the product in good condition for a long time, we recommend a regular cleaning period, particularly frequent in places characterized by high humidity and marine climate. We recommend cleaning the surfaces with a soft cloth using water or neutral detergents. Prolonged and uninterrupted exposures to intense UV radiation or at very low temperatures can affect the initial characteristics of the colored polyester coating. We recommend cleaning and storing products in sheltered areas during long periods of non-use and winter.
