Karpeta + Texturae, new collections and a new Milan space
The brand new Milanese showroom of Texturae wallpapers and Karpeta rugs was born as a creative hub, a place of sharing and inspiration for architects, interior designers and retailers. Located in a historic building in via Cappuccio 18, in the heart of the 5 Vie district, the space will exhibit the highly creative collections developed under the new artistic direction of Andrea Steidl and Raquel Pacchini founders of / àr o/ studio and wants to be a real point of reference to experience the creative language of the two affiliated brands, whose synergy gives life to a revolutionary approach in living the everyday space.
In this space the two brands present the 2020 product novelties which are based on daring aesthetic experimentation that originates from different creative worlds: the collections are in fact designed by a pool of designers, illustrators, graphic designers, architects, and artists with varied styles and backgrounds. Eclectic in training, inspiration, and style, the national and international designers selected by the new creative directors explore different themes and paths, but all in perfect balance between avant-garde design and craftsmanship.
Texturae introduces three new wallpapers. LINUS is the experimental elaboration of Eindhoven's Raw color creative studio whose motif reproduces the dusty and imperfect lines of chalk pastels. TIDE by DWA design studio mixes shades and color blocks that mesh up in a perpetual game. HAIRSPRAY by Costariol draws inspiration from the sparkling interiors of the 70s clubs and from the glam exuberance of their patrons in an interweaving of vibrant colored lines.
Karpeta instead presents the first collaboration between the Milanese studio directed by Alessandra Salaris and the radical approach of Sans Nom, who create together the OVERSHADOW rug. Handloom made, the product investigates the theme of transparency, creating an illusion of shadows that multiply on the surface in a game of overlapping. A thin graphic line interrupts both visually and materially, bringing out the structured weave of the fabric, while the perimeter fringes, which seem to flee from the shadow that covers the surface, accentuate the chromatic contrast of the composition.
