Inkiostro Bianco joined the Milan Design Week 2018 by presenting two prestigious projects: the new collection lineadeko, created in partnership with Listone Giordano and signed by Aldo Cibic, which was showcased during the Salone del Mobile Event; the introduction of the 2018 Textile Project held in the Brera showroom, the Georgette curtain decorated with two Capsule Collections designed by Nerodiseppia and Studiozero.
The Inkiostro Bianco stand at the Salone del Mobile, which was entirely dedicated to lineadeko, displayed exclusive artwork featuring prints and etchings cut through the vertical wooden surfaces. That was news indeed: literally taking decorations into wooden vertical surfaces. The birch wooden surface is indeed suitable for decorating, rather, “dressing” the different spaces of your home, from bathrooms to contemporary kitchens to more complex projects regarding wellness and hospitality sectors, such as: hotels, offices, luxurious yachting or public spaces.
“It is a different decoration. Working on wooden surfaces is a novelty compared to what the market offers at the moment” states Aldo Cibic “collaborating with both Listone Giordano and Inkiostro Bianco was a fundamental combination to make this project happen: on one hand the high-end raw material portfolio by Listone Giordano, on the other hand the incredible design know-how of Inkiostro Bianco…these elements combined together made it possible for a brand new design concept to be developed, something totally different from what has been produced so far. It is different because it is a warm product and it can be applied on the existing surfaces…its potential for applications is incredible”.
At Fuorisalone, in the Inkiostro Bianco and Olivieri Mobili showroom, a new concept of decoration was presented with the 2018 Textile Project, which completes the textile range thanks to the Georgette curtain alongside with Buio, the matching darkened fabric. This is a design solution which gives room to infinite interpretations suitable for walls, floorings and other elements inside the house. 14 new artworks dedicated to the textile world were proposed to launch the 2018 Textile Project: Rituals Collections illustrates geometric graphics and neat lines; Trésor Collection takes inspiration from the natural world with its floreal patterns. All of Inkiostro Bianco’s Collections can be adapted to the Georgette curtain, giving the ambience impactful visuals which are a continuation of the walls decorations.
The decorated glass installation was eye-catching: a fascinating installation of more than 2 tons of glass was created in partnership with Ferro and Veneto Vetro. This gave proof of yet another possibility to combine Inkiostro Bianco’s design skills to the printing technology on large glass slabs by Veneto Vetro. From this results a multitude of opportunities for applications while planning each project.
The introduction of Lineadeko by Aldo Cibic, the 2018 Textile Project as well as the experimentation with glass prints broaden the possibilities for decorations, confirming the choices to develop a complete project on horizontal, vertical or multi-material surfaces. This constitutes a huge benefit for the retail sector, which will be able to offer its clients and project planners a whole new, comprehensive ambience experience. With these new projects, moreover, Inkiostro Bianco is exploring different market niches by diversifying the offer towards a multi-channel approach and while guaranteeing its customers the same quality standards for each individual project.
