The Unique and Chinese Inspired Horoscope Collection by Missoni HomeWednesday 14 February 2018
The Unique and Chinese Inspired Horoscope Collection by Missoni Home – Recently, luxury brand Missoni Home launched a new stunning and unique collection of products inspired by the Chinese Horoscope! It’s now time for CovetED to present this stunning collection and the idea behind it!
The story behind this collection begins in the 80s, when Ottavio Missoni bought a set of boards with the Chinese Horoscope Signs, featuring the unmistakable touch of eclectic artist, Piero Zuffi. These zoomorphic figures, 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.
In this collection, 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 skillful mastery on tactile fabrics; precious tonal and texture effects with lustre and opacity, shades of different intensities and elaborate embroidery.
Printed cotton satin, velvet panels and dense multicolor embroideries feature and large silk “toppers”, like a scarf, decorate the sofas. The theatrical nature of the figurative characters give spirit to the colorful cushions, this is accentuated as the reverse is in tones of variegated grey. The symbolic figures 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 compliments. The large modular sofa (Tektonik), formed of elements with a rounded geometry, can be dispersed like islands. The grey emphasizes the elegance of the dining chairs (Miss); the slim legs wrapped in satin with an animated backrest, like a shield printed in silk.
So many interpretations, all of them desirable. For collectors, the figurative cushions, in printed satin (Oroscopo) or embroidered (Oroscopo Ricamato) are a true temptation. The chiaroscuro profile evolves in the tufted rug gently engraved in delicate hues of grey (Ideogramma Tappeto). All the zodiac panels are also featured on the top of a rectangular wooden coffee table.
This pictorial collection, Horoscope Missoni Home, for its unparalleled character and timeless qualities will be ongoing. It is produced and distributed by T&J Vestor. Don’t miss it!
