A human story in praise of craftsmanship, this is a collection of whites
that are mixed and matched together in ethnic forms, textures and patterns. One
can feel the mark of the artisan on the simplest of materials.
An entire range of whites is represented here, from the brightest optic
white to the dirtiest dusty white. Accents of faded earth and vegetable colours
are used, but sparsely, as are the brighter colours taken from the other ranges.
Furniture is generous and simplistic, taking its lifestyle inspiration from
faraway cultures bordering on the exotic, sometimes evoking colonial memories.
Fibres are just natural: linen is first and foremost but undyed cotton,
felted wool, raw silk and vegetable fibers are also important.
Weaves are simple and basic: voile, cheesecloth, canvas braiding, double
cloth, shantung and irregular openweaves.
Patterns are of ethnic origin: irregular burnt-out motifs, engineered
prints, oversized symbolic signs, minimalistic repetitive patterns, patchwork
and appliqués, handpainted, smeared, and brushstroked effects.
Finshings are mat: whitewashing, plastering, crackling, bleaching.
Of form and function. A monumental story of composition and dedonstruction,
of rhythm and repetition. Colours, textures and fabrics are inspired by
architecture and the oppositions found there: cool, smooth metal with warm,
textured brick, sanded glass with grainy concrete.
The colour range is built upon functional mechanical and stone greys with
accents of brick for new and exciting harmonies of cold and warm colours. A
modern arrangement of precise dimensions, reintroducing serial industrial
Fiber is functional: mat cotton, glazed linen, masculine woolens, polyester
and nylon, microfiber and tencel, elastomere blends.
Weaves are structural: toile, canvas, basket weaves, ottoman, piqué,
geometric colourwovens and jacquards. Micro motifs and simple quilts. Collage
prints including photo and typography, enlarged architectural drawings and
Patterns are geometric: mat and shiny effects, masculine draperies,
geometric dobbies, mat velvets, corduroy, flanell, and a noted comeback of sober
Finishings are technical: resembling metal and skin, glass and stone,
leather and suede.
Spiritual, ornamental, millenial, this is a story of highly-decorative
accumulation in spicy colours, fancy fabrics and elaborate designs for an
atmosphere somewhere between ethnic elegance and hippie extravagance.
The colours are deep Buddhist reds and meditative violets, while orange,
yellow and gold accents shine a light of spiritual reflection on the range. An
ornate mixture of fabrics creates a colourful, comfortable universe of couches,
carpets and cushions. Indeed, this theme recalls nomadic times and tribes, where
man lives close to the earth in richly appointed tends of decorative
Fibers are refined versus rustic: silk, acetate, rayon, viscose and
microfiber set against heavy cotton, wool with touches of alpaca and mohair.
Weaves are elaborate: epinglés, jacquards, tapestries, brocades, crochet and
lace, velvets, satins, and fancy oriental transparencies.
Patterns are decorative: ikat stripes, tapestry designs, tie and dye
effects, ornamental jacquards, arabesque appliqués, and hippie patchworks.
Finishings are weathered: every possible means is put to use in order to
bleach, fae, create a patina, and wear away materials to the limit of decay.
A story about the molding and shaping of lines and forms, retracing the
harmony between colour and volume.
Greens are dominant, especially in their more almond and acid tones, with
feminine accents carefully chosen for surprising harmonies. The boldness of
shapes to come demands a progressive approach reminiscent of the fifties’
divination of modern design. Forms are smooth, sculptural, rounded and organic,
with renewed interest in teardrop and palette shapes and patterns.
Fibres are simple and/or synthetic: mat cotton, carded wool, heavier
microfiber, with a revival of nylon and plastic.
Weaves are straightforward and compact: toile, voile, canvas, ottoman,
honeycomb, rabanne, crêpe, cotton velvet and corduroy. Tweed and bouclette will
reappear on furniture.
Patterns are artistic: Fancy colour wovens, brushstroke stripes, abstract
motifs, exotic fowers and the re-edition of genuine 50’s furniture prints and
Finishings are discreet: sunbleached or faded to enhance the retro feeling.
