Acciaio, translating to “steel” in Italian, is the subject of Lipsey’s second reiteration of designs based on the bicycle. His first collection, consisting of 2 chairs and a side table, now has a full companion set including a lamp, tables and storage cabinets, as seen above. In an array of bright colors, each piece’s quirky form becomes a unique sculptural object with a practical end-use. More from the designer below.

From Lipsey: Acciaio derives it’s name from the most important element of the work–lightweight steel tubing borrowed from bicycle frame building. The inspiration for the series is the classic racing bicycle with a geometry that is strong, light and elegant.   Stage 2 includes a range of furniture pieces and lighting that use steel tubing, perforated plate and natural leather. The perforated surfaces accentuate the works’ lightness and use semi-transparency to obscure contents and surrounding space. Faceted surfaces and new angles break away from traditional forms and create an entirely new interior language.
