Flap Diamond is a studded with 750 thousand Swarovski crystals, born thanks to a collaboration with Swarovski, mixes the purity of crystal with design excellence. Diamond is a collection dedicated to those who appreciate beauty and sensuality.
Edra puts man, the highest wishes about comfort and relax, at the centre, and every day edra works towards that goal. Edra comfort is an extraordinary dimension of life, which can be presented in many different ways, but always at the highest level.
Craftmanship is an essential working method to provide edra’s quality, the oldest and newest one, and it is through craftsmanship that knowledge is handed down: work is done according to a high-tech project, while thinking back to the good manual skills that have always existed here in Tuscany. The hands are the only way to provide the most excellent quality. The hands can sense, adapt, build, convey and achieve goals that machines simply cannot.
An essential balance between technology and beauty, between reason and instant wonder.
This is one of edra's values: passion, which creates the greatest quality.
The one that belongs to its land, Tuscany, the heart of Italy, the one that gave the world the masterpieces of Renaissance.
At edra, fabrics and upholsteries are an integral part of any project, in engineering and aesthetic terms, not just trendy or colourful covers.
Every product in the Collection is preceded by extensive research into the ideal covering to complement their tactile and technological features: edra devises and designs the materials that can be helpful for any project, and then it produces them on an exclusive basis so they will be perfect for its collections.
The version Diamond mixes the purity of crystal with design excellence. Born from a collaboration with Swarovski, the Austrian company leading producer of cut crystal, it’s a collection dedicated to those who appreciate luxury and sensuality. The first piece, Flap Diamond, was produced in 2001: a Flap studded with 750 thousands Swarovski crystals. In 2005, other precious pieces were born: Getsuen and Tatlin Diamond, sparkling light with Swarovski crystals. Each piece is “signed” by the brands of both companies, etched on a metallic label: a guarantee of authenticity and uniqueness for true objects of desire.
The magic of Diamond Collection CrystallizedTM with Swarovski is achieved using a special high-strength fabric containing Kevlar, to which the crystals are applied after cutting. The technology “hot fix”, patented by Swarovski, allows you to create any decor by applying the crystals to the fabric. The finished fabric is then sewn by hand directly on to the product. A craft of haute couture.
