FONT collection (18)


Font is a family of outdoor posts and poles designed by the architect Marco Acerbis. Essential volumes, vintage lines and timeless elegance are the main features of a versatile product that is extremely adaptable to its context of use, both as a single and repeated element. The fully engineered optics by Platek are presented in a street beam, asymmetrical and circular diffusion. "Font is a lamp designed to give depth and identity to the outdoor composition, both in shape and for the light produced." says the designer "In this it is very similar to the 'font', the typeface chosen to write a text: a font not only adapts to the language and medium, but also influences its reading, style and content". Available in two versions, a pole from 30 cm to 1 m and street furniture on a pole ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 m.

Marco Acerbis
Born in 1973 Marco Acerbis graduates in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1998. From 1997 to 2004 he lives in London where he works with Lord Norman Foster’s Studio. Over these years he collaborates on the construction of an eight storey high Medical Research Building at the Imperial College Campus in London. He then becomes Project Architect for Capital City Academy, a 250 meter long High School building for 1400 students which was opened by Tony Blair. He sets up his own practice in Italy in 2004. Fascinated by designing at very different scales he quickly moves on to explore with a constant cross over of skills, ideas, tools and technologies all sorts of subjects to achieve a globally designed space. The Vertigo floor lamp, designed for Fontana Arte in 2004, was immediately acknowledged as a best seller and an icon of our time and is now included in Vitra Design Museum permanent collection.
