Atipico were founded in 2012 by a team of forward thinking visionary world acclaimed Italian designers who have taken traditional home objects and pushed the boundaries of design to create functional pieces with unique Italian design. Atipico’s ethos is always to be different, unique & alternative while maintaining the aesthetic beauty of traditional Italian design. The Atipico collections show a blend of originality and unique materials, using a wide variety of woods, cement, iron, glass & textiles. Atipico’s family of Italian celebrated designers collaborate and exchange their visions of design within each collection, to create new creations with a real unique Italian feel.This was designed and created by Antonino Sciortino.
Born in Bagheria, he starts to learn the blacksmith’s craft already at the age of 8 in his brother’s workshop and at the same time he becomes fond of dance, by attending a dance school in Palermo. After a brilliant dancer’s and choreographer’s career, in 2003, in Milan, he joins the Compagnia del Giardino and begins a new artistic phase focussing on the constant quest for dance’s own ethereal lightness in iron working. Its creations stem from the very unusual use of annealed iron wire, a special type of iron, more easily malleable, which time by time resembles wood or plastics thus enabling to create spatial animations featuring soft lines and “dancing” shadows. Sciortino recovers that extremely rich heritage of artisan knowledge in which Italian flair and creativity really let their light shine, by heralding the excellence and creativity of our country all over the world.
