This year we’re taking part in Milan’s International Furniture Fair once again. We’ll be hosted by the Atelier Virginio La Rocca, as usual, to present our latest collection, but we’ve got some new projects to show you, too: here’s a sneak peek of them.
From April 10th to 12th: our latest collection on show at Atelier Virginio La Rocca
From Wednesday 10th to Friday 12th April we’re bringing the fabrics we’ve presented during the Paris Déco Off to the Atelier Virginio La Rocca. Another velvet is joining the collection on this occasion: it’s called “Coralli”, it draws its inspiration from the colours of the coral reef and you’ve already seen it on the bags and cushions we’ve talked about in this post.
The Atelier, located at number 27 Via Giacomo Leopardi, will be open to the public from 10.00 AM to 6.00 PM.
Our brocatelles meet murrine: with Bross Italia and Marco Zito at the Furniture Fair
Bross Italia and Venetian architect Marco Zito have chosen our silk brocatelles to create some innovative furniture upholstery fabrics inspired by murrine. These are glass objects – vases, bowls, jewels and much more – featuring colourful and abstract figures, produced following a method which is known only on the island of Murano. It’s an extremely complex procedure, generating coloured glass canes with circular designs – as for example on the vase you see here – or other shapes.
Our partners have drawn their inspiration from these unique objects to design some furnishing fabrics which are a riot of colours and dedicated to Venice and its craftspeople. As Marco Zito said:
The affinity between the furnace, Murano glassmaking, the creative art of Ercole Moretti and the antique weaving mill Luigi Bevilacqua, is amazing. The base colour of the textiles are the glass colours melting in the pot furnace, the Murrine are the yarns, the stitches and the fabric motives.
You can see the final result in the exhibition spaces of the Milan Furniture Fair, hall 16, booth C36, from April 9th to 14th.
Here below you can get a preview of this brocatelle, as well as of some of the stages of the production of murrine.
New decorative cushions in Promemoria’s and Artemest’s booths
If you’re looking for some cushions for a living room, you can’t miss those covered in our velvets in Promemoria’s new collection. This company from Lecco produces handcrafted furnishings and you can find its products at number 13, Via Bagutta, in Milan, on April 9th, 11th and 14th, from 10.00 AM to 8.00 PM.
Last but not least, our Tigre velvet cushion will be on show in Artemest‘s booth, as well. The showroom of this online showcase of Italian craftsmanship is called “Living Objects” and is located in a 1930s villa at number 5 Via Randaccio, open from April 9th to 14th. Together with TED Milano, Artemest is going to both decorate the mansion with furnishing items carefully selected among its products, and to create a few theatre performances: some actors will perform scenes from everyday life, thus animating the objects and letting visitors travel back in time.
