Interior Design News: Porro Launches the Enigmi Collection of CarpetsWednesday 7 November 2018
Interior Design News: Porro Launches the Enigmi Collection of Carpets ⇒ The internationally acclaimed design brand, Porro has established itself as one of the top traditional Italian cradles of production of quality furniture and for mastering the art of combining artisanal techniques and today’s technological methods. Recently, the Italian brand joined forces with designer Elisa Ossino and Kasthall to create a majestic collection, entitled Enigmi that is comprised of wool and linen carpets. Paying homage to the great tradition of Berber artisanal masters while also adding a contemporary twist, this unique collection showcases the best of Porro!
The collection of pure wool carpets is best defined by clean lines and impeccable details. Porro’s know-how when it comes to material research certainly enriches this collection. The pieces come in a wide variety of shapes, from rectangular to round as well as multiple colour palettes, including beige and pearl grey.
These exceptional carpets, handwoven on a loom or hand tufted, recall the visual project rigour which is one of the trademarks that characterises the style of Porro. Whether in black or white, the contrasting graphical elements merge beautifully with geometric patterns. The former evokes the great tradition of the Berber master artisans while the latter helps to introduce a more contemporary touch to these designs.
In this collection and courtesy to the skill of the Sicilian architect and interior designer, Elisa Ossino, you are bound to find geometrical abstraction, monochromes as well as metaphysical and surrealist references. Due to all of these, this line of carpets introduces a coherent and allusive relationship between space, delimited by their strong stroke, light, and the Porro systems and collections that rest on it. Each single soft but resistant carpet provide an unmatched sense of harmony and expression.
“Creative vitality and capacity for dialogue, curiosity to compare oneself with universes apparently at the antipodes but united by the shared passion for quality projects, place Porro among brands which are trendsetters, always at the avant-garde, for the desire to experiment and experiment with oneself, which with this collaboration further extends its own horizons, offering complete settings to its own retail displays and company-owned stores throughout the world, in the name of praise of production and of an elegance which is not ostentatious.”
As a whole, the Enigmi carpet collection is a phenomenal showcase of artisanal craftsmanship and innovative design where only the finest natural materials were used to conceive this extraordinary final result.
