The design gallery dedicated to the 2022 textile collections

Craftsman, but innovative. The vernacular, but contemporary. Brutal but delicate. Built on unresolved contrasts and eternal opposites, drawn ontextile art thus designing an unprecedented generation of substances. On the strong shoulders of tradition, the experimental gesture that projects textile design into the future reinterprets the oldest processes to embrace modern tastes and accompany the feeling of a new life. Slower, more authentic, more intimate. Far from the convulsive pursuit of perfection, the textile collections presented on the occasion of Milano Design Week 2022 continues slowly, only to the rhythm of the weavers and the hands of the craftsmen, repeating visual patterns that are never the same as themselves. The natural colors of sand and earth are preferred, the patterns recreated with shoots and chain define soft geometries to be spread on the floor, as rugs, on the wall, as tapestries, or around the body, as rugs and plates. Rediscovered traditional weaving techniques of the Italian district, as well as the intertwined work typical of the countries of the East, the 2.0 production retains the narrative spirit of textile art with the creation and thinking of the new designers.

The result is three independent but modular elements that explain an iconographic, vaguely surrealistic story that describes Calabria” according to a horizontal and vertical reading that connects the paradigms: lived orography, cultivated nature and inner archeology “.
