From June 7-12, 2022, we will be at the Salone del Mobile in Milan to present our 2022 collection of fine fabrics and some projects created in collaboration with our Tessitura. We present them to you.
Designing Sustainability, Celebrating Beauty
The Salone del Mobile, now in its 60th edition, has witnessed the evolution of design and custom over all these years. A showcase of excellence of quality, innovation, and creativity in the furniture sector and a must-attend event for those in the industry. This event is also suited to those who are attracted by the wide range of merchandise and the rich carnet of appointments and projects. This year the event combines its core values of quality, innovation, and beauty with sustainability, reflecting its commitment to the ecological transition of the furniture system.
It is made up of seven events, including the Salone Internazionale del Complemento d’Arredo, divided into 3 stylistic types: Design, Classic, and xLux. Just in this last area, dedicated to timeless luxury reinterpreted in a contemporary key, we will exhibit our fabrics, with a focus on the new 2022 collection.
Bevilacqua Fabrics at XLux
In our stand number H20, Hall 2 of the xLux pavilion, we will present the new fabrics of the 2022 collection. Capri, Fontane, Lune, and Pigna velvets, which we have talked about in a previous article, the brand new proposals of black velvet for elegant and refined interiors, and some of the most beloved fabrics of our production such as Rinascimento heddle velvet, Fiere heddle velvet and Taccheggiato velvet in the new trendy shades of this year: celeste, coral and jade. These are joined by the brand new Fontane brocatelle and Paradiso damask.
The new Fontane brocatelle reproduces an Art Deco-inspired motif with stylized gushing fountains that create an elegant and contemporary decor, offered in classic color combinations and a vibrant coral.
Paradiso Damask is a fabric with iridescent shimmer and a refined exotic-inspired pattern of flowers and leaves of bamboo and papyrus, presented in delicate color combinations and an intense coral.
Rinascimento Heddle Velvet
The Rinascimento heddle velvet motif features natural elements, typical of the second half of the 16th century, with a lattice structure of intertwined stems forming ogives, embellished with stylized carnation, lotus, and thistle leaves and flowers. A refined Renaissance design embellished and illuminated by metal yarns declined in numerous colors to which are now also added celeste, black, jade, and coral.
Fiere Heddle Velvet
Fiere velvet, made of silk and cotton, reproduces a 13th-century design and depicts two fierce animals, probably leopards, protecting the tree of life, in an elegant, stylized composition, now also available in celeste and jade.
Taccheggiato Heddle Velvet
A silk and cotton velvet with a distinctive texture in which the discontinuous weave creates a unique effect with vintage charm. The color range of Taccheggiato heddle velvet is also enriched with the new proposals: black, coral, jade, and celeste.
The sensual allure of black and the silky softness of velvet are the perfect combination for furnishing fabrics of extreme elegance and sophistication. The color black in luxury furnishings lends drama and a sophisticated touch to rooms.
Design and Craftsmanship in the Project by Arch. Zabarella
At Superstudio Più, to be held at 27 Via Tortona in conjunction with the Salone del Mobile, designers and companies have been invited to translate the word “sustainability” through individual or group exhibitions. One of its events, Donne&Design, addresses the theme of female creativity in industrial and craft design. Architect Diana Zabarella‘s project, developed in collaboration with our Tessitura and which will be presented at Donne&Design, is set in this context.
Arch. Zabarella lives and works in Venice, a city known for its skilled wood, glass, and fabric work. Here she was able to develop her sensitivity to craft processes that have an ancient tradition, and learn the techniques and knowledge necessary to reinterpret them in a personal way. From her approach, which blends lightness and sustainability, four works were born, two of which were made with some of Bevilacqua’s fabrics whose colors Celeste, Giada, and Azzurro, recall those of the waters of the Venice Lagoon. They are the Bozzolo pouf/tablet and the Canfin lamp.
The Bozzolo pouf/tablet, a Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua by Fedele Chairs production, is made of beech wood and named after the silkworm cocoon. The shape of its removable velvet upholstered seat is reminiscent of that of the cocoon. Moreover, silk is the precious yarn used to create the velvets that cover the seat. These are Fontane velvet and Pigna velvet. The frame can be used as a small table by laying the cushion on the floor, which becomes a low seat.
The Canfin lamp, a Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua by Selène Illuminazione production, is named after the Venetian oil lamp that was used on boats, outdoors, and in the home. It is made of wood and some of our fabrics: the Giardino Craquelé damask, the Grottesche Craquelé damask and the Craquelé damask. The lamps are LEDs that can be recharged with a USB socket.
The Project by Bevilacqua-IED, European Institute of Design
Another project born in collaboration with our Tessitura, which will be premiered at the Salone del Mobile, is the one with IED, the European Institute of Design.
In 2021, at the invitation of Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua, students in the third year of the Interior Design course at IED Venice were confronted with the velvet production of the historic Venetian company to create furnishing accessories. Our fabrics, still produced with 18th-century looms in the heart of Venice, were used by the students to produce partitioning elements with wooden or metal frames.
We evaluated the proposals of the 18 current students and awarded the works of Nicole Sbabo and Edoardo Zamengo, two screens made respectively of metal and Lune velvet in Celeste color, and of wood and Giardino brocatelle in the colors antique turquoise, antique blue and antique green.
We are happy that this collaboration has offered students the opportunity to confront themselves with the concrete realization of products and is a testimony of specific attention to the productive realities of excellence that embody the very essence of the lagoon city and its most authentic part.
Once again this year the Salone del Mobile celebrates ‘savoir-faire’ offering inspiration and originality through immersive visiting experiences that testify to materials research, environmentally conscious production, beautiful objects, and useful and creatively shaped furniture and furnishings. We look forward to welcoming you too, to see and touch all the novelties described, at the Salone Internazionale del Complemento d’Arredo, in Rho, Hall xLux, Hall 02, Stand 20, from Tuesday, June 7 to Sunday, June 12.
