Press Campaign 2018
The Flying Carpet
In a world where nothing is what it seems, the Amini carpet is told in a story poised between metaphysics and fantasy. The lack of balance, the movement, the suspension free the carpet from its primary function, inserting it into a dreamlike space, drifted by a vortex of transformation that gives it a new form and a new identity. Carrying away furniture and accessories, the carpet becomes the protagonist of a story of fantasy that will accompany Amini in the new 2018 press campaign.

The contemporary figure of Ico Parisi
Architect, director, photographer, artist and above all, one of the most eclectic and prolific designers of the Italian twentieth century, Ico Parisi is now receiving an increasing interest from all over the world. Collectors's demand concerning his art works is rising significantly, as reported by international auction houses. Today Mr. Parisi's work is recorded in a philological order thanks to the catalog edited by Roberta Lietti, responsible of the cultural legacy of the artist, enriched by an introduction by Marco Romanelli, critic of Italian design. Proudly, Amini pays tribute to Roberta Lietti who, with her passion for Ico Parisi’s work, has made a fundamental contribution to the design development of Onde and Utopia rugs, inspired by recurring motifs of the master's work.

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.
