ALPI IKAT 2
Wooden wall tiles
The new Ikat veneers are based on the world of oriental textiles. "Ikat" comes from the Malay word “mengikat,” meaning "to tie," i.e. the traditional dyeing technique where parts of the yarn are protected by tight bindings to keep the dyes from reaching them, while the other parts absorb the color. The weaving of the yarns thus treated creates a particular design known as “ikat,” generated by the intersection of warp and weft, which becomes the creative impulse behind this new ALPI collection that features simple and slightly blurred geometric motifs, combining subtly similar or delicately contrasting hues. A transfer of textile art onto wood that stimulates new aesthetic and perceptive sensations, translated as facings in the domestic context.
