Acerbis: Blast from the Past


August 15th, 2011

The Parioli system by Lodovico Acerbis and Blok table by Nanda Vigo were 2 important designs from the Acerbis collection launched back in 1971. In celebration of their 40th anniversary, the Italian company has released the re-edited pieces to the world – proof that good designs remain relevant with the passing of time.

Parioli is a system of containers characterised by an understated yet strong form thanks to its stainless steel material, geometric shape and lack of handles. The flexibility of the system allows the user to create horizontal or vertical sideboards.



Blok is a square table with a central base made of a single ’block’ clad completely in mirrored glass, reflecting on all sides and also through the transparency of the tabletop. The design is available with a lead-grey mirror base and a transparent or grey transparent top.
