A very topical figure, Ico Parisi
Architect, director, photographer, artist and above all one of the most eclectic and prolific designer of the Italian twentieth century, Ico Parisi is now receiving an increasing international interest. There are always more frequent purchases of his works by collectors in auction houses all over the world. An interest that today finds a philological order thanks to the reasoned catalog edited by Roberta Lietti, responsible of the intellectual heritage of the designer, and enriched by an introductory text by Marco Romanelli, critic of Italian design. Proud, Amini pays tribute to Roberta Lietti who, with her passion for Ico Parisi’s work, was fundamental in the development of the collection of Onde and Utopia rugs, inspired by recurring motifs of the master's work. Ico Parisi design. Catalogue raisonné 1936-1960. SilvanaEditoriale.

Focus on: hue and texture
Carpet’s aesthetics is the result of ever-changing combination of yarn colors and imperceptible geometries of textures due to the processing techniques. This is an evident feature in the Amini Edition Collection, characterized by an essential and only apparently monochromatic aspect. Whisper, for example, is a carpet that is distinguished by the typical not homogeneous effect of pile, typical of loop & cut processing technique, whose irregularity represents a sort of signature of the weaving craftsmen. Perla rugs are also distinguished by an irregular effect obtained by the union of wool, cotton and hand-carved bamboo silk,
from which results an articulated pile with different heights.
