MERLETTO COLLECTION

Design by Fabrizio Bianchetti

The art of Lace – Merlettooriginates from a love story. A romantic legend tells that a long time ago in Burano lived a young fisherman named Nicolò, engaged to Maria, a local girl he loved madly. A few days before the wedding, the young man was in the high seas with his boat and was tempted by the fascinating singing of the Mermaids; but since he was newly betrothed, Ulysses resisted the persuasive call and remained faithful to his beloved. The Queen of the Mermaids, impressed by the fisherman’s strong fidelity, swung her tail to strike the side of the young man’s boat, lifting a dazzling mass of foam that formed a magnificent wedding veil, a finely embroidered lace. On the wedding day, Nicolò gave the precious veil to his bride: this gift aroused so much admiration that the women of Burano, with needle and very delicate thread, learned to make a fabric that would be worthy of the wedding gift of the fairy tale. From this tradition, different variations of the art of lace were developed in numerous Regions of Italy (as can be seen in numerous provincial museums). Our Merletto collection honours this tradition by drawing inspiration from it for its own designs.

For the Merletto Collection, a series of NCS tones have been selected, but the entire collection is reproducible in all the NCS catalogue colours and is open to any further colour customization. Below, a series of possible combinations of the Cantù design with the colours of the Merletto Collection and the Infinite Collection.

MERLETTO – THE DESIGNS

All the colour variations obtainable with the 40 colours of the catalogue can be reproduced with all the designs of the Merletto Collection.

MERLETTO – LACE POP

Lace Pop is a contemporary and modern proposal that explores and expands the expressive possibilities of Merletto. The varying size of the print and the use of bright colours for the background provide a contemporary interpretation of the ancient tradition of Italian Lace.

The Merletto Collection is also available in relief. All the decorations can be reproduced in relief with different chromatic combinations: white decoration on a coloured background, matching two-tone decoration in relief, contrasting two-tone decoration in relief and finally tone-on-tone decoration in relief.

The Merletto Touch Antique Collection integrates the typical Lace decoration with vestiges of ancient decorations, providing the opportunity to reproduce in relief some parts of the design itself.

NATURART EN

NATURART

Design by Fabrizio Bianchetti

The Naturart collection is defined by a series of drawings that celebrate nature and its colours through the representation of wire elements and stains of colour, with the intention of transferring into modern living spaces the greatness of the emotions that nature can give.

The collection includes 6 designs that cannot be interpreted in further colour variations as each design is a celebration of the floral/plant type represented. A creative and playful note is provided through the option of inserting in the chosen design some animals typical of the proposed environments.
Naturart can be implemented with the most varied requests of customization, keeping the basic design unchanged and playing with colours that recall the subject represented.

MIDA EN

MIDA

Design by Fabrizio Bianchetti

Midas, adopted son of Gordius and Cybele, was a mythical king of Phrygia. He is well known in Western culture due to his ability to transform into gold whatever he touched.
Mida collection, therefore, aims to investigate the multiple expressive possibilities of metallic surfaces, patinas and the bright effects typical of precious surfaces.

The collection consists of different expressive solutions: I Preziosi, Le Patine, Cesello, Inserti.

I PREZIOSI

I Preziosi are surfaces related to gold and silver leaves, traditional decoration techniques obtained from precious materials laminations in very thin plates and some satin metal surfaces.

The particularity of Mida collection lies in the materic relief reproduction.

LE PATINE

Le Patine are an interesting proposal that enhances the pleasant chromatic variation that time imposes, with its slow flow, on the metal surface: bronze, iron, and copper are transformed giving versatile variations.

Cesello is characterized by surfaces grooved by signs, engravings, and decorations in which the depth and variation of emerging metals constitute a personal expressive code.

Cesello was created to give life to a line of surfaces that emphasize, through the reproduction of drawings in relief, the micro-geometries and macro-geometries of Infinite Collection.

Cesello line, with micro- and macro-geometries, is available in gold and silver relief colors and it is applied on solid surfaces of Infinite collection (16 colors) and custom colors.

Inserti enriches Foliae Surfaces Collections as it uses metal surface application techniques to enhance some details of the design of Foglie, Signum, and Le Città invisibili collections. It also customizes the designs proposed by customers.
