Rubelli inspires the new ceramic collection by Florim, ”i filati di rex”

by | 17 Oct 2019 | Suppliers

The decorative motifs of ”i filati di rex”, the new ceramic collection produced by Florim in collaboration with Rubelli for Cersaie 2019 (Bologna, 23-27 September), are all patterns derived from Rubelli fabrics.

The two Italian companies Rubelli and Florim – which enjoy international standing in the sectors of textiles & upholstered furniture and ceramic tiles respectively – joined forces to launch an exciting project for interior design.

The Venetian company’s most iconic decorative patterns come to life on the ceramic surface in an elegant interplay of relief effects that reinterpret the texture of the fabric.

Florim, brand synonymous with luxury and elegance, has selected nine Rubelli fabrics:
they range from classic damask motifs (like San Marco, part of the collection for over a century) to floral patterns (like Funny Girl and Lady Hmilton that offer a modern take on classic elements) and geometric decorative patterns (perfect for those in search of more understated decoration), as the jacquard Happy Hour.

As if by magic, fabrics “turn” into ceramic, and the mingling of these two materials – so different yet at the same time complementary – offers a sensory experience that engages both sight and touch.

Large slabs that look hand-woven by the skilled fingers of master weavers become a new expression of Italian-made beauty and design.

“The Florim project has led us into a totally new field. It came as a revelation to me to see textile patterns and designs that are so familiar to me, exquisitely transposed onto ceramic slabs. You could say that Florim in some way made me … feel at home! I’m proud to say that now, in addition to the Peggy Guggenheim – of which we are both supporters – we have another project in partnership with Florim” , stated Rubelli CEO, Nicolò Favaretto Rubelli.

“We are proud to work in partnership with such a prestigious company as Rubelli, a veritable icon in the world of luxury artisan textiles. Our technologies, coupled with their tradition in the textile sector, will give life to ceramic products of the highest aesthetic value, reinforcing the image of Italian-made beauty and design worldwide”, stated Claudio Lucchese, Chairman of Florim Ceramiche.
