Designer

Reflecting Giotto Stoppino and Lodovico Acerbis’s role as a leading exponent of modern Italian design, the Sheraton sideboard combines a sleekly groundbreaking shape with innovative functionality.
The winner of the Compasso d’Oro in 1979, the seminal design forms part of the permanent collection at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. The Sheraton’s original closures and sliding system — a revelation upon its initial release — have been further modernized to ensure a smoother gliding.
An icon, design product that it has remained unchanged since 1977 and is now enriched with new lacquer finishes in six contemporary tones: burgundy, pink, dark green, mustard yellow, and brick red.

The work of Acerbis caught the attention of the world of art and became an integral part of it. The company worked with numerous exceptional photographers, including the photographic studio Ballo+Ballo, which produced a series of shots for Acerbis with its particular surrealist stance that gave a De Chirico-style light and life to the cornerstone pieces in the collection.
