Italian textile producer creates water-inspired exhibit for Milan Design Week

MILAN – Italian textile producer Alcantara has teamed with Archiproducts to create a water-inspired interior-design exhibition open to the public at the Studiopepe architecture studio on Via Tortona in Milan.

“Aqua, A Design Exploration” made its debut during last month’s Milan Design Week 2024 and will be open for public viewing for the next year.

Furniture, curtains, wall coverings and ceiling treatment in this year’s exhibit were designed to evoke water in all its shades. Furnishings are colored in a variety of hues from cool white, softer aqua-green and light blue to intense ultra-marine, electric blue and dark deep-ocean shades.

Technologies such as micro-dot foil-refined pleating, prints and 3D embossing were used to transform Alcantara’s made-in-Italy material into shades representing everything from the ocean to fresh-water streams and pools.

Alcantara also participated in two other major programs during Milan Design Week at Triennale Milano and at the ADI Design Museum.

Also during Milan Design Week, an exhibition at Triennale Milano featured Alcantara-infused art echoing the work of visual artists, fashion and industrial designers, film directors, architects and musicians. In addition, the company created a special display entitled “Driving into Endless Customizations” that showcased the use of Alcantara material on automotive dashboards, doors and seats at the ADI Design Museum.
