Carpet Danza enhances the visionary and evocative aesthetics of the Japonisme work of René Gruau, where curved lines bring movement and the combination of bright colors is by design. The collaboration between the Italian-French artist and the Milanese entrepreneur Fede Cheti gives shape to a unique carpet, hand-knotted in a precious mix of wool and silk.
René Gruau (Rimini 1909 – Rome 2004) was one of the most recognizable illustrators of this last century. His elective affinity with the fashion industry is expressed through his collaborations with the most celebrated fashion and couture magazines of the time. His work with Christian Dior gave rise to one of the most revolutionary artistic associations of the century, from which the New Look emerged, a modern reworking of late nineteenth-century fashion. An incisive and multi-faceted creativity that indelibly marked European culture through his timeless style.
