À Table 

The table nowadays is a melting pot of different cultures, customs and traditions. The contemporary palate seeks increasing involvement in multiethnic culinary experiences and the dining table is the physical space for meetings and exchanges. This is the driving concept behind À Table, a new collection of objects and accessories for the table – plates, bowls, glasses, baskets, carafes, cutting boards, cutlery and linen – designed by Fabrica for Atipico and to be previewed at Maison et Objet, Paris, from 23 to 27 January 2015.

Entirely Made in Italy, À Table is inspired by the food habits and nationalities of the young creatives at Fabrica. The designers took their inspiration from countries such as China, Egypt, England, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Morocco and Scotland. The result is an eclectic yet coherent collection in which, thanks to a strict design, different materials (ceramic, wood, metal, glass and fabric) are used seamlessly and in which every single detail is studied to coordinate the various pieces both aesthetically and in their daily use.

The product catalogue had to be sent to print when half of the prototypes haven't been ready yet to take pictures from. There was a need for quick renders which are printed in the final catalogue:

After also the photographs (by Marco Zanin) have been taken, Marlene created renders with the same arrangement to challenge realism in photography and computer generated images in 3D - see the two pictures right below:
