Art never dies. It has no expiry date. It’s always in fashion… Art lives, evolves and is reinvented. This is what Equipo DRT has done for its new classic fabric collection called Palladio. It echoes and highlights some of the finest creations of this Italian architect (1508-1580). Palladio was adored by the nobility of the Republic of Venice in the 16th century, and admired by all for his superior geometries, symmetries and architectural wonders. Yes, Palladio designed many Italian villas in his age: Pisani, Foscari, Badoer, Emo… And these beautiful Italian masterpieces, five centuries later, are what Equipo DRT has skilfully transferred to a series of sophisticated and elegant fabrics for interiors.
Palladio is said to be the first classicist in modern architecture. He was the master who updated ancient Greek and Roman architecture and gave it the timeless beauty it still has today.
Inspired by his art and creativity comes the Palladio Collection from Equipo DRT. A new range of double-width upholstery fabrics being presented at the forthcoming Paris Maison&Objet Show in January 2015. This collection stands out for its large-scale geometrics and damasks, its ground-breaking bid for gold and silver lurex, in which metallised yarns are combined with natural colours, including greens, blues, golds, reds and mink.

Emo is the plain-design proposal that combines with all our other designs in the collection, offering a finish creating a crepetexture in which the thread itself is the protagonist. The absence of any pattern is reminiscent of the patrician villa in Veneto, Villa Emo, with its imposing majesty and the simple mathematical relationships expressed in its proportions. Wings and main building form a homogeneous whole. Like Emo.
In addition, Equipo DRT has developed three designs in Jacquard velvet: Paulova, Duncan and Bernhardt – rich fabrics in which both depth and form are highlighted, and being presented along with our entire new catalogue.
