l’Opificio Collections: Domestic scenes by Bruno Tarsia

At SalonedelMobile.Milano, l’Opificio textile collections interpreted by the contemporary and eclectic spirit of the architect and interior stylist Bruno Tarsia present l’Opificio creations in a new light.
Precious fabric and velvet collections are portrayed as alive elements that create a dialogue among space, human being and the everyday life.
The Lehnstuhl, lounge-chair of Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, designed by Nigel Coates, an iconic element that combines great comfort with aesthetic beauty and Sara, a glam chair of Velvetlab, designed by Gianluca Bocchetta, both wearing l’Opificio fabrics, are leading pieces of the set design.

l’Opificio collections dress, interpret, characterize, enrich your home making it your personal ideal refuge. Beautiful textiles to be touched, filled and lived in, they are synonymous of high-end quality, of a refined classical style, but contemporary; a skilfully mix of historical citation with a fine and explosive perception of the colour.
l’Opificio fabrics and velvets welcome usmaking us feeling comfortable and dreaming.
The explosive richness of the velvets wins sight and touch; the material fabrics inspire a sense of quietness and intimacy; the subtile charm of some collection make us thinking of faraway and seducing culture, all this is l’Opificio world.
This is what it is perceived from the refined tailor-made soft furnishing, such as cushions and bedspreads. Unique pieces of timeless style, designed and handmade – thanks to the excellent bespoke service – for unique interiors.

Slow Velvet: long processing time velvet

ONE MONTH PROCESSIGN TIME FOR l'Opificio SILK VELVET

l’Opificio silk velvet collection is a rich and precious collection, the result of a long processing time, starting in the far East, where we choose the silkworm’s finest fibre.

A fibre that is worked exclusively in Italy through long and slow processes of selection, dyeing and drying, which take more than 20 days. Slow and thorough processes, avoiding to the fibre any kind of stress and enhancing to its best shininess and softness, without adding formaldehyde.

Once yarn is ready, silk will be weaved and transformed into velvet. A process carried on by expert weavers, which takes around 60 hours of diligent weaving.

But it’s not over yet: l’Opificio quality requires 5 more days of different finishing, which, thanks to expert hands and old machineries, will make velvet pile soft and smooth and will enhance its silky aspect.

Only thanks to this long and careful process, which is almost a month long, l’Opificio can assure a precious, unique and safe quality, which is also long lasting and loved all over the world.

“A LIVING SPACE” BY KIT KEMP

A VOYAGE THROUGH KIT KEMP'S INTERIOR DESIGN

In A Living Space, internationally acclaimed interior designer Kit Kemp takes you on a vibrant, inspiring personal voyage through the many spaces she has designed. Here she shares the tools of her trade – her passion for materials such as fabric and embroidery, wood and stone; the innovative way she dares to mix colour and pattern with old and new furniture, textiles and objects; the joy in the wit and humour of contemporary art, dogs and unexpected details; and most importantly, her ethos that design is not something to fear; but instead something to be embraced and enjoyed.

In this book, Kit Kemp brings together a visual feast of images to show that when it comes to design, there are no rules. It is about trusting your instincts, being prepared to take some risks and being clever with affordable and accessible pieces rather than always needing to blow the budget, and above all having fun.
