The journey has woven your professional paths and you can read in your wallpapers that seem to move between different landscapes and territories in balance between graphics and art, in search of color to create evocative environments. What crumbs do you leave on each wallpaper to recompose your project in Wall&decò?
Art, history, current events are sources of inspiration that can be summed up in a single word: the journey. It is traveling everywhere and in any case to become the favorite dimension to meet people, experiment languages, traditions, new needs, immerse yourself in sensory experiences, cultural exchanges. By exploring places, you become an active part of an ecosystem made up of natural landscapes or anthropized environments, rich in history and innovation, studded with famous works or hidden details. Venice and Milan are the cities that have taught us and continue to teach us something. Each of us, then, dusts off our roots: a thread that starts from Dario's Sicily and arrives to Luca's Dolomites. It is, therefore, the continuous balance between past and future, tradition and experimentation, art forms and instinctive languages that are transformed into frames that we try to reproduce through our wallpapers. Each of our graphics wants to create atmospheres by dialoguing with the surrounding architecture through paradigmatic signs and evoke emotions according to the sensitivity of those who observe them and live them.
Do you have a distinctive sign with which you sign your wallpaper?
Each wallpaper is born from the graphic elaboration of a photograph taken by us, the crystallization, hic et nunc, of a glance, a memory, a sensation born from particular games of light or transparency in outdoor or indoor environments. Most of our collections are distinguished by the presence of a dynamism generated by graphic signs or architectural elements. Each composition is born from superimpositions of elements, shadows or backgrounds that lead glances beyond appearances, circumventing the rules of the flat surface of the walls inducing three-dimensional visions that give shape, color and emotional impact to the places where people stop, act, live to suggest inner visions. A little bit, as if we were poets called to write on the walls verses that will be read and interpreted according to the mood, attitude and past of those who read them.
Do you have the possibility to cover the wall of a room of your cult artist (art, cinema, design, literature, music, etc.)? Who is the artist and why? Which room would you cover? With what paper?
Very often we ask ourselves provocatively how some artists and architects of the past would have interpreted the Wall&decò world using their own language.
Among them we imagine Adolf Loos, Mies Van der Rohe, Louis Kahn or Frank Lloyd Wright struggling with the creation of wallpaper graphics. Or we would like to see an interpretation of Pontormo, Burri or Paul Klee. But if we had to choose, we would probably dream of entering a room designed by Fellini's oneiric genius dotted with poetic quotations and contrasting color backgrounds.
