In the 80s, Ottavio Missoni bought a set of boards with the Chinese horoscope signs, featuring the unmistakeable touch of eclectic artist, Piero Zuffi .‎ These zoomorphic fi gures, with almost mythological masks are framed like paintings.‎ Alongside are ideograms, designed with a delicate geometric precision and in bas-relief.‎ These symbols from the mysterious East have a scenographic energy that transfers to the choreography of the collection.‎ Horoscope collection by MissoniHome.‎ The 12 characters from the original artwork (ox, dog, goat, horse, dragon, rooster, rabbit, pig, monkey, snake, tiger and rat) inspired by the lunar calendar, are reproduced with skilful mastery on tactile fabrics; precious tonal and texture effects with lustre and opacity, shades of different intensities and elaborate embroidery.‎ Printed cotton satin and dense multicolour embroideries feature and large silk “toppers”, like a scarf, decorate the sofas.‎ The theatrical nature of the fi gurative characters give spirit to the colourful cushions, this is accentuated as the reverse is in tones of variegated grey.‎ The symbolic fi gures intertwine with the elusive maze of ideograms.‎ The chiaroscuro is in Yin and Yang balance.‎ The vibrancy of almost silvery tones on the fabric, like a historiated bas-relief, confer a lightness to all complements.‎
