Dimorestudio’s Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran have added a further feather in the cap of their innovative approach to interior design in the form of Progetto Tessuti, which launched in 2015 and has been growing steadily ever since. The textiles collection joins the Progetto Non Finito furniture line, the Objects home accessories collection and the Progetto Verande outdoor furniture line. The brand unveiled the latest models in the Progetto Tessuti collection at the Palais Royal, 11-12 Galerie Montpensier, during Paris Deco Off.
The short, simple name of the collection of fabrics for both indoor and outdoor spaces belies its explosive nature. It stems from an “alchemic” mix of visual opulence, bold iconographic features, graphic character, sophisticated fabrics and an intense technical process. “The interior fabrics in satin, cotton and silk are processed to create stunning three-dimensional effects, with different textures and a really full-bodied effect,” explain the designers. “Meanwhile, the outdoor fabrics are inspired by urban settlements, where architectural elements become an original decorative effect, and beaches, where the presence of humans lends audacity to an elegant, non-conformist sense of creativity.”
Jacquard and prints coexist in perfect harmony, as do precious and vintage materials, threads of varying thicknesses and techniques such as embossing, pigmentation and distressing. Meanwhile, lamination is combined with embroidery and stunning finishing to great effect. There really is an experimental feel to this collection, which in true Dimorestudio fashion, draws inspiration from the past to create something new and innovative. These gorgeous, almost theatrical fabrics have an almost galvanising effect, breathing new life into any space.
