15/04/2019 - Karpeta, the rug company, and Texturae, specialized in the production of wallpaper, show the novelty products in a joint exhibition in the evocative setting of the Santuario di S. Antonio di Padova. The new Texturae products in exhibition are signed by the architect Gianluigi Landoni, Ludovica+Roberto Palomba and Zaven, while the latest Karpeta novelty is by storagemilano.
The products by Karpeta and Texturae not only redesign the interiors, but also create a narrative experience aimed at transforming the environment, modelling the set to make it the protagonist. The activity of Texturae and Karpeta is based on aesthetic research and qualitative excellence of the products; in each of the collections, designers and artists can express their creativity with inspirations from their personal sensibility, having the opportunity to work in small or large dimensions, and experimenting with the use and combination of various techniques.
The two brands present their 2019 novelties in a special installation inside the Santuario di S. Antonio di Padova. The church, originally designed by the architect Paolo Cesa Bianchi at the beginning of the Twentieth century, and later enlarged by Giovanni Muzio in the Seventies, houses the installation offering an eclectic decorative context, ranging from neo-baroque and neoclassical marks to neo-romantic accents. Here, in the clerical library, the designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba have developed the installation concept “Unexpected Rainbow”, which focuses on the brightness of colours, in contrast to the austere rigor of space.
The starting idea is to bring “a piece of sky in its most colourful sense, the rainbow” inside the installation. The designers describe the concept as follows: “The installation path we have designed for Karpeta + Texturae focuses on the colours of the prints. An Unexpected Rainbow, in digital print, becomes the fil rouge of the exhibition and envelops the viewer in a colorful walk, emphasizing the unique designs for which the company stands out.”
The collection of wallpapers Segni e Tracce, designed by architect Gianluigi Landoni, reflects the brand’s tendency to balance grafic patterns with softer motifs in neutral tones and delicate structures. Landoni’s products recall the colours of the earth, natural landscapes and materials surfaces.
Antitesi, by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, is the series of wallpapers that explores the theme of opposites: dimensions, materials, different gestures that come into contact dividing the space of a wall. The patterns, breaking at half height, give voice to the continuous desire to experiment and find new perspectives to perceive the products: the soft, hand-drawn signs of the upper part collide with the decisive, graphic patterns of the lower part. This contrast is further accentuated by the decision not to use colours other than black and white.
Lastly, Zaven, the multidisciplinary creative studio founded by Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno, presents the Northern Lights collection of wallpapers: inspired by the Northern Lights and the almost surreal play of light and colours that it generates, the wallpapers of this series open up a view of an intangible scenario, made up of contrasts of light and perspective dimensions that reveal and hide colours.
Karpeta also showcases the latest novelty, presenting Laguna, the rug created by the storagemilano studio. The new concept, conceived by the Milanese architecture and design studio, was born as “a picture of chromatic contrasts poured between the rough and the delicate depths of the lake”.
