special projects

If the idea strikes a chord with us, we realize special made-to-measure projects commissioned by people acknowledging our – quiet yet powerful – bottom-up action – ie recovering used technical materials, offcuts and production scraps otherwise on their way to the trash can and yet still surprisingly performing.

In the very heart of Vienna’s colourful Prater district, Superbude is a hotel, a house, and a hostel. In their own words:“What is normal today? We are not and hotels are not what they used to be. We like to be ourselves, so you can feel the same. Just the way you want to. We see Superbude as a place for get-togethers, meetups and a cosy home from home rather than a huge hotel monster”. And to make their family rooms even more cosy, they commissioned us our yellow and blue bean bag chairs from the SICILY MARKETS collection.

La Camparìa in the island of Favignana used to be a complex of depots for the storage of the tools employed in the Mattanza, the traditional tuna fishing in the Aegadian islands. An admirable architectural renovation has turned it into a shop, lounge and wine bar. For the lounge, close to the beach, we created the speaker covers and the bean bag chairs from the CANAPONI collection, perfectly camouflaged in the sand. Finally, commissioned by A&D interiors (Adriana and Donata arte e design), we designed for the shop a mini collection of maxi cushions called Camparìa – its blues and greens blending in the brightness of white and sandy of the linen/hemp. You’ll also find them in our online shop!

Called in to design the textile furnishing for the reading rooms of this charming Biblio-workshop in the very heart of Palermo’s Kalsa district, we teamed up with architect Flora La Sita (FLS Architetta) to work on a SICILY MARKETS colour palette harmonising with the plywood furnishings and the nautical items about the place.

Studio Lyga, while re-shaping the interior design of Circolo della Vela in Palermo, asked us to create some special I WAS A SAIL elements for them – the showers partitions. And what better fabric for that than the unused sails from the club’s own shed? Furthermore, for the bar-room and the dining room we realized three large lampshades made out of Kevlar/carbon sails, thus completing the awesome setting up by Studio Lyga of Gaia and Lycia Trapani.

Caffè Internazionale _ Palermo

This is a place with some history – a meeting place for artists and musicians. Caffè Internazionale asked us to recover all the seats left over from the previous management, re-thinking them along the lines of our SICILY MARKETS collection and matching them with newly made cushions. We reupholstered everything worth salvaging with scraps of German outdoor fabrics from the 1980s in 100% polished cotton, harmonising it with the vaguely psychedelic palette of Caffè Internazionale.
