The Italian parquet brand XILO1934, whose products are represented in Russia by the Triumfalnaya Marka company, produces an author's collection of decorated oak parquetry - 1934DESIGN. Famous Italian architects and artists take part in its creation. Parquet from this collection is highly valued not only for its design, but also for the fact that it is completely ready for installation and does not require any additional processing.
Literary-romantic little things "descended" from the engravings of the great dreamer Piero Fornasetti, as if scattered on the Passi Letterari parquet - these are shells, feathers, books, playing cards, watches, measuring instruments, key chains, tubes of paint, brushes and other trifles. Piero Fornasetti looked like a magician with sky-blue eyes and fabulously prolific: his son Barnaba still continues to dismantle his archives - he uses finds for new projects and is sure that his father's sketches will last for several more lives.
Geometrico's elegant design is based on just two simple shapes - a leaf and a semicircle. In the myriad variants of possible compositions, one can discern similarities with the fonts in the spirit of the 1970s, the Suprematist heads of Malevich, or even fragments of the figure of Le Corbusier's modulator. The author of the design is Professor of the Technical University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano) Luca Scacchetti, who, by the way, headed the jury of the international competition ArchiChallenge 2013, held in Russia.
Designer Marco Ferreri finds inspiration in the works of nature itself and is sure that she will gladly reveal her secrets to those who sincerely want to hear and see them. Marco looks around him attentively and finds beauty in the sky, on earth, in the grass, in the trees. And here, in the design of the Imprinting parquet, the artist seems to carefully "lay out" the jewels from his herbarium - a wide variety of tree leaves, twigs and pine needles.
The pattern on the Tappeti Volanti parquet imitates a carpet spread over wood. The preferences of the designer Davide Pizzigoni, who has been passionate about opera for about 20 years, can be clearly seen here. He created sets and costumes for opera performances on the world's best stages. In 1995 he worked on the set design for Alfred Schnittke's Gesualdo, which was staged at the Vienna State Opera under the conductor of Mstislav Rostropovich. All of Pizzigoni's work is permeated with the influence of Gothic. And here, in the decor of the parquet, we see stylized Gothic spiers and turrets, and in the "carpet" itself you can see, for example, a view of the sky from a medieval castle.
The architect, restorer and architectural historian Carlo Dal Bianco painted oak parquetry with a paisley pattern, or, more simply, cucumbers, an ancient decorative motif. This pattern was born in Persia or, according to some sources, in India, and a couple of centuries ago it was loved in Russia and Europe. At first, this exquisite and at all times trendy motif covered fabrics and dishes, then walls, and now it began to decorate floors.
A completely girlish ornament by the artist Manuela Corbetta depicting stylized tulips against a background of graceful leaves. The design of the Sissi parquet is interesting because, depending on the comparison of the pattern of neighboring boards, its character radically changes - the result can be both a whole romantic "carpet" of tulips, or a completely brutal "pigtail" ornament.
But urban architect Luca Compri sees maps of large cities in the texture of the tree: knots are squares, bark beetle moves are streets. Indeed, an aerial photo of Venice is actually very similar to a photo of a tree in section. The author complements such a tree drawing with more graphic fragments of a metropolis scheme with a predominantly orthogonal grid of streets reminiscent of Manhattan. With the Maps design, the author offers to create maps of your own cities right on the floor.
The design of the Ramoscelli parquet by the architect Paolo Tempia Bond is very organic - the author delicately decorates the wooden board with painted thin twigs, as if the wind scattered them on the ground. The drawing is clear and unobtrusive at the same time. Thin smooth lines rather emphasize the significance and age of the tree, without trying to enter into polemics with it.
Xilo1934 Piemonte Parquets was created by the Basso Legnami group, wood suppliers starting back in 1934. After gaining a lot of experience in the supply of wood, the group decided to expand its production cycle to meet the growing demand for wood floors, especially for large planks. Professionalism is guaranteed by 70 years of experience. Today the company covers an area of over 110,000 square meters, 30,000 of which are workshops equipped with the most advanced equipment.
