Double Signature. A dialogue between design and artisanal excellence


The collaboration between the designer and the artisan has resulted in “RE-FRAME”, a pair of square tapestries mounted on a wooden frame, designed to be hung on the wall to form a large-scale textured canvas measuring 3 metres by 1.5. The “pibiones” weaving technique, which is the typical grain stitch of the Sardinian tradition, has been modified with knitting needles of different thicknesses to create an irregular and less precise weave that is, however, very textural, pictorial and contemporary. “My idea stems from an approach that respects the tradition and workmanship of Elena Mulas and is closely connected to the project in a wholly personal vision of the concept of 'playfulness', which is based on the assumption that there is no game without rules, and that it is not possible to break these rules if you do not know them, interiorise them and then reconsider them. This is how, together with Elena, I came up with these unconventional wall tapestries,” Cinti explains. The idea of experimenting with new materials, combining raw Sardinian wool with unusual yarns and materials, has resulted in innovative, three-dimensional textures. Defiantly contrasting the lively colours of playfulness, the designer opted for the radical choice of black and white, characterised by the interaction between opposites evolving in their multiple variations and infinite combinations. Because "To see in colour is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul." (Andri Cauldwell)
