Where architecture meets and blends with innovation, this gives birth to “Undici”: a unique, one-off, prestigious collection of etched parquet flooring created in collaboration between Inkiostro Bianco and Listone Giordano, the historical Umbrian company. The latter will proudly take this new, upcoming project to Paris for an official unveiling during the Architect@Work event which is held on the 21st and 22nd of September.
The essence of “Undici” is to reinterpret the materials not just by creating new geometrical shapes or layers, but by using superficial laser craftsmanship that will give a whole new identity to each floor covering.
The perfect synergy fusing the know-how of Listone Giordano and Inkiostro Bianco innovation led to the creation of this unique collection which is simply in a class of its own. The parquet surface is treated as a pure work of art, where new evocative forces emerge from each laser engraving, which are indelibly cut in the wood to stand the test of time.
The variety of styles in the collection is then able to satisfy different and specific needs for each individual project.
The new “Undici” collection comes in three lines designed by Inkiostro Bianco, Studio Zero and Emanuele Missaglia
The new “Undici” collection comes in three lines and produced with one background and ten different textures; in addition to these, you have Touchè, which can be totally customised and individualised. Each variant retrieves its own distinguishing features: Inkiostro Bianco sees the engraved pattern as geometrical textures where lines and graphics intertwine on the wooden surface. Studio Zero makes use of embossed hand drawn lines and free geometries creating a continuous play of light and shade. Emanuele Missaglia develops his work based on the concept of modularity, creating hypnotic patterns that amplify the tridimensional effect of the etchings.
Thanks to its collaboration with Inkiostro Bianco, Listone Giordano, the first company ever to reread the wooden surface through design, has shown their forward thinking attitude towards the world of interior design projects and has yet again confirmed their skill and capacity in offering highly innovative products which guarantee the highest level of quality standards while respecting the environment.
