December 21, 2015: Sicis, the Italian luxury mosaics brand, is going to launch its first collection of home fabrics at the Maison&Objet (Paris, 22-26 January 2016) show.
The haute couture line of home coverings is made in velvet, viscose, lurex and other polyester fabrics, but also in opaque cotton wisely mixed. The fabrics have floral motives with an oriental taste of the Dolium panels and the Zaira’s poetic ramages. Also find the famous monochromatic trend in the tone of gold, platinum that changes to silver, bronze and shining black.
All the fabrics have been developed with the Jacquard technique and by the skilled hands of Italian craftsmen. Textiles that take inspiration from the artistic Dolium pieces and from the Zaira decorative elements are realized with haute couture looms, pledging high standard finishing.
The architect Massimiliano Raggi, who has also created the fabrics, explains, “Usually light games, vibrations, reliefs and joints rise tesserae after tesserae, no matter if it is a surface or a furniture piece. We manage to replicate these same effects into our fabrics. Result: the craftsmanship of the tiny mosaic making is present in every single element of the collection. The original designs of Sicis have personalities and tri-dimensionality, all details are glorified, the tailor’s attention and the finishing are sumptuous. It is possible to touch the luxury”.
