The meeting between Lodovico Acerbis and Giotto Stoppino marks one of the most important historical moments for both the company and the design industry: an unusual form of collaboration where the designer’s vast professional experience merges with that of the entrepreneur.

Their affinity and creative harmony have led to the creation of several significant works in the field of design. Among these, the Sheraton sideboard, awarded the Compasso d’Oro in 1979, has become one of the most celebrated outcomes of this collaboration. An enduring icon, it presents itself today as more contemporary than ever, confirming its distinctive presence within the Remasters collection.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Polyester lacquering and the exploration of new technologies have become the cornerstone of the company’s philosophy, characteristics that still represent a solid and current foundation. The shiny, glossy lacquers, distinctive of Acerbis, have now evolved into a more contemporary colour palette.

In 1983, the Menhir table collection was born, featuring bases inspired by classical Greek aesthetics supporting glass tops. Now part of Remasters, the collection presents itself as a series of contemporary-sized low tables, with lacquered and cast glass tops in vintage car-inspired hues. The marble bases add a unique touch of elegance and sophistication to each piece.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In the same year, Med was introduced, a seating characterized by delicate forms hat embodies the two designers’ experimental approach to materials and craftsmanship. Embellished with bright or soft coloured fabrics and a wooden or lacquered structure, Med is an extremely versatile element of the Remasters collection.

 
 
 

The two have collaborated on various products, including the modular Hilton system, the Brooklyn bookcase, and the Quartetto sideboard. These pieces represent the union of functionality and distinctive design, characterised by the skilful use of materials and a modern aesthetic.
