The bastard fontables

by vecho 30 November 2011

Fontable is a project by designers Alessandro Canepa and Andrea Paulicelli: a new concept of modular elements that form tables using graphic signs; alphanumeric furniture as they call it.

Today they present their first special edition of fontable × bastard.

Tables are made from steel sheets with lacquered paint for indoor and outdoor use, with adjustable legs in painted iron that allow the overlapping and combination of table surfaces.
The Skulltable, that reproduces Ricky Fiorentini’s original skull design, and the Roundtable that reproduces the original round bastard logo have been created specifically for bastard.

Too old to skate everyday?

Last night i witnessed an exeptional reunion of the old school scene: Billy Runaway came for a visit, he was a pro skater for Madrid in the 80s and a potojournalist for Thrasher in those years. The welcome team was so composed: Max Bonassi, Alex Colombi, Claudio “Jep” Bernardini and Andrea Paulicelli. These old folks hadn’t seen each other in 21 years, surprise! Alex had first met Billy in Milan back in ’85, and soon introduced him to Bonassi who was craving for a consulence for building a vert ramp in Monza.

To celebrate, we sat at the fish restaurant right next door and popped some corks… After a 3 hours food fest we went up to the bastard bowl, but we suffered from the digestion along with the wine effects and a few more years on our shoulders… Too old to skate? Maybe not, infact Jep and Bonassi did represent with their skating as much as they could, but maybe i’m “too old to take action photos everyday”, eheh! So i decided to only post their mugshots, and since i started skating in the 80s, those are the faces that inspired me to join the four wheels and a board world… All the best to Billy and his young company skate company, and I thank him for a little industry talk, that done with the right people is never boring! See you next time, hoping it doesn’t take another 21 years!
