Paola Lenti: Weaving Spaces / Tessere spazi
Maurizio Corraini, Mantova, 2014
“This book describes the interweaving of colours that mix with the principles of perspective, of form that interacts with the eye, of light that blends with the shades of materials. But above all it describes a design, a project made of the stuff of dreams, in which skilled hands have given geometric precision, shape, proportion, concrete essence to the visible.”
The choice of fabrics and design experimentation, always sitting precariously between tradition and innovation, have become the distinctive marks of all Paola Lenti creations, a company in which artistic project and artisanal work come together in mutual encroachment, in a continuous comparison of knowledge, technique and experience.
Weaving Spaces uses visual suggestions and combinations to examine the key concepts of a unique way of designing. The idea, which is not just entrepreneurial, gives visibility to beauty, to harmoniousness, mirrored on a visual and tactile level in the graphics and appearance of the book. Bound by Lenti thread, the analysed concepts expand, pointing to images and reflections, to create a canvas, a multidisciplinary fabric of ideas.
