Élitis and Studiopepe Collaborate on Archiutopia Outdoor Fabric Collection
Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto of Milanese multidisciplinary studio Studiopepe join forces with French textile brand Élitis for Archiutopia, an outdoor fabric collection inspired by the radical architecture depicted in Invisible Cities, Italo Calvino’s seminal novel from 1972. The six patterns feature repeating structural elements—stairs, doors, buildings—organized in ever-changing geometries. Argia, for example, looks like a brick wall, Zoe, a vertiginous cacophony of skyscrapers. Despina is more gestural, while Eutropia resembles a city that was never completed. The fabrics, largely solution-dyed polyester blends, are antibacterial, anti-UV, and resistant to chlorine, water, and mold.
