s e r i e n°u m e r i c a  re-interprets the archetype of mattress by proposing a futon made of materials usually unrelated to the realization of such an item:

90 layers of recovered fabrics alternate with foam rubber.

 The project is born from the will of giving new life to waste fabrics that are now recovered and sew together, creating a stratification of different colors and materials.

Thanks to these materials the futon becomes precious and unique; all its layers are therefore visible from the outside, giving relief to the inner substance, usually hidden.

 Furthermore the disposition of foam rubber and fabric layers creates several themes that turns the futon from a simple mattress to a real piece of furniture.


EDITAMATERIA continues its journey to experience the matter in encounters between future and past, between origins and new paths, between preservation and innovation.

 On the occasion of the Milano Design Week 2018, Editamateria in collaboration with ANTONIO ARICO’ explores the relationship between man and his objects, enclosed and free in “una stanza”, objects that become emotions and awaken memories and sensations, living matter around oneself.

‘una stanza’, which brings us an almost archaic and primordial vision, a closed place, an intimate place, a place that is alive, a place to live in, a place that contains everything and where everything is contained. The main room, where man spends most of his time.
