Rectangular fabric rug
Velvet, Linen, Viscose
The Volentieri project came into being after visiting, with Eugenio Perazza, a familyrun Venice firm which has invented its own technique for producing tufted rugs on an industrial scale. With them, I wanted to make simple, quiet and almost neutral rugs, lit up by slim, bright and luminous bands like neon strips. Volentieri is a collection of rugs available in standard sizes and which can also be made to measure. There are two models: Cornice, which appears as an overlapping of two rugs, one on the other, and Finestra, which appears instead as three overlapping rugs. This creates a very characteristic shape yet one which is easy to use. In each of them we find a group of weaves and yarns of a different type: weaving both in velvet and bouclé and shiny viscose on matte linen. Cornice is made up of two squares of matte linen in bouclé outlined by an edge in shiny viscose velvet. On the Finestra model, however, rectangles of thick and very soft viscose velvet are separated from each other by slim lines of linen and viscose with a bouclé weave.
