Inspired by The World
Capsule Collection 04
Design by Leo De Carlo and Giovanni Luca Ferreri
A journey into the world of finishes
The new Arte Veneziana contemporary look
by Leo De Carlo and Gianluca Ferreri
Art that imitates nature. A debate that has been going on for thousands of years attracting philosophers and thinkers of all time.
For its capsule 04 “Inspired by the world”, Arte Veneziana and the designers Leo De Carlo and Gianluca Ferreri recount the finishes made while looking at the world through a journey to places of art and beauty. The vision of a Tuscan landscape during a warm June day is the perfect image that crystallises Tuscany, a finish that plays with the shades of gold, green and sky-blue.
The austerity of Mostrina describes French classicism at its best, while the sinuous lines of Shogun Flower winks at Japanese graphic culture. But it is with Posidonia that we return home, to Italy. The story of a marine lagoon-bed is steeped in hints and references to Renaissance nature specimen drawings.
The perfect squaring of the circle: four worlds apart that recount as many atmospheres and sensations; a testament to the beauty of the world.
