Exploring the tactile languages of visionary architecture with three-dimensional weaves that accentuate sensory perceptions, Archiutopia is a collection of outdoor fabrics created by Élitis and Studiopepe. The project is the result of unification of the conceptual approach of Studiopepe and the know-how of the manufacturer Élitis. The names of the patterns (Argia, Zirma, Zoe, Eutropia, Bauci, Despina) are based on the Invisible Cities of Italo Calvino, for reflections on the nature of human experience.

Also designed for outdoor use, the patterns of these fabrics have been created to convey a forceful aesthetic even in open landscapes, with repeating architectural imagery: staircases, doors, buildings, organized in always different geometric tableaux. The fabrics become landscape architects, with lines that approach each other to the point of mingling, as in the case of Zoe, or in Eutropia that seems to represent cities built inside cities, and Despina, featuring more random figures.
