The ongoing process of creative research and experimentation with different scenarios pursued over the years by Zuccon International Project recognises that Dedar – the Italian textiles company – is its ideal partner for exploring in depth the subject of materiality and the conversation around fabrics whose naturalness and strong decorative impact become central, signature elements.
The partnership process began with Zuccon’s desire to focus on certain types of materials already used by Dedar, with the aim of pointing up the theme of nature in this collection of fabrics.
These fabrics abandon the concept of pure decoration in order to rediscover – through the combination of different fibres or using a different percentage of cellulose – an almost primitiveform that itself becomes the focus of the stylistic message.
Born out of this is the collection named GEA – the Italian for Gaea, the goddess of the earth and the origin of life in Greek mythology – which features three different fabrics selected from the range and customised by Zuccon with a series of special colours.
Arké, natural pattern
Alongside Gea, as well as selecting fabrics already in the Dedar range, Zuccon has created a new pattern, Arké, a name that defines the concept of principle and origin, the primigenial power that dominates the world, a connection with the elements that represent nature: air, water, earth and fire.
This symbology was applied within the fabric that defines this pattern composed of a linen yarn and a polyurethane thread that defines the design.
Arké is presented in three colours: Terra di San, Avorio d’Africa and Spago Diligo.
