Consistent with the designer’s keen aesthetic sensibility, the Poesia Collection by Carlotta Fortuna cultivates a close bond with nature. It consists in an entirely hand-woven kilim, with a dense weave, that encapsulates an uncontaminated natural environment on the verge of pervading the entire space. Long-stemmed flowers are scattered everywhere, in an apparently infinite pattern, leaving an ethereal trail in their wake. The elegant hand-embroidered motif confers to this artefact, and indeed to those who observe it, a dreamy atmosphere steeped in delicacy.
A decidedly immersive character defines this new collection, whose aim is to bring a little bit of outdoors, or rather nature itself, into the home.
Carlotta Fortuna was born in Vicenza in 1984. She studied at Politecnico di Milano, at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture in Lyon, in Australia at the U.W.E University, and at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Milan. After a collaboration with Studio Citterio & Partners, she collaborates with various companies in the field of surface decoration. Since 2019 she teaches CMF at Istituto Marangoni in Milan in Masters “Surface and Textile Design” and “Contemporary Interior Design”.
