Archiutopia is an emancipatory exploration led by Élitis and Studiopepe, who together have created an outdoor fabric collection. It is inspired by radical architecture, conceived as a means to change the world.

Archiutopia

The object was there, appearing out of nowhere.
It bore the mark of man but sought an experiential infinite freedom, its own vision.

The nature of the gesture is random. Like our vision, which changes its angle over the course of its journey.

Spokespersons
of a tactile and utopian vision

The names of the designs are each linked to Italo Calvino’s “Invisible Cities”. In the spirit of these imaginary cities, they offer a meditation on the nature of human experience.  

Studiopepe

The Studiopepe design agency has merged its conceptual approach with the know-how of the wallpaper and textile editor Élitis. Archiutopia opens up a field that explores the languages of a visionary architecture, presented primarily through its tactile features. A three-dimensional fabric has even been added to accentuate sensory perception.

The designs of these outdoor fabrics of a new genre explore a repeating architectural iconography: stairs, doors, buildings, organized in ever-changing geometries.
