altreforme is an Italian brand that produces high-end furniture and accessories collections and tailor-made projects. The brand was born in 2008 from an idea of Valentina Fontana, an enterprising entrepreneur and the thirdgeneration of the Fontana Group, a historic Italian company that for nearly seventy years has been designing and making aluminum molds and bodies for the world's most desired supercars, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Rolls Royce. Thanksto its automotive origins, altreforme has mastered the processing of aluminum, a noble metal that
is corrosion and weather resistant, three times lighter than steel, and completely recyclable. The green aspect is key for altreforme: in fact, the brand hasinitiated major circular economy projects, with the use of sheet metal that is no longer exploitable for automotive industry requirements and made available by the parent company.
From this upcycling approach comes Otto, a dynamic partition with an irregular pattern designed for altreforme by Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas.
