altreforme is Valentina Fontana's project that sprung forth ten years ago from her original idea of adapting aluminum for interior d cor. Fontana's milieu is steeped in aluminum, as she grew up in the Fontana Group factory, a longtime world leader in designing and producing luxury car bodies for clients including Ferrari and Rolls Royce. This formative experience inspires the project, which transfers technical know-how and vanguard technologies from the automotive sector to the design world, creating shapes, colors, and finishes hitherto impossible.
altreforme is considered noteworthy by architects, interior designers, and contractors around the world. It has won major international awards as the Elle Decor Design Award, and every year, in the prestigious context of Salone del Mobile in Milan, presents new exclusive collections designed by stars of the field: Aziz Sariyer, Marco Piva, Garilab, Elena Cutolo, Antonio Aric , and high-fashion brands like Yazbukey and Moschino.
This book celebrates a decade of passionate success by showcasing customized products and projects, in series or unique pieces, that push the boundaries of what is possible with aluminum with never-before-seen sinuosity and detail.
