A new project makes its debut at LINEAPELLE 103, scheduled to take place at Fiera Milano Rho from 20 to 22 February 2024.
Its name is LINEAPELLE INTERIORS, and its mission is to promote and enhance Italian leather in the interior design sector through styling and product development actions, activating collaborative connections with the world of Italian and international design and architecture
The first of these actions is LEATHER DUETS, a business culture exhibition that, inside LINEAPELLE (Hall 24), stages a sequence of installations: "duets", each of which presents the realisation of an exclusive leather design project shared between a made-in-Italy leather manufacturer and a furniture company. A path linked by a thematic fil rouge that leads the semi-finished product to become international excellence, passing through its transformation into a high-end finished product.
"With this new project," comments Fulvia Bacchi, CEO of LINEAPELLE, "dedicated to interior design, LINEAPELLE is creating an area of strong and engaging appeal to explore the value of Italian leather and hide in areas other than those more closely linked to fashion, for which, however, they are confirmed in their role as reference materials. LINEAPELLE INTERIORS is an opportunity to open up new creative and market horizons".
"We believe that, as far as made-in-Italy leather is concerned, there are vast areas of application that have remained unexplored or not properly expressed for the interior design sector to date," explains the artistic director of LINEAPELLE INTERIORS, Maurizio Molini. "This project represents a set of actions aimed at launching possible futures towards the Design Economy, implementing involvement at an international level and activating business development opportunities."
MANTELLASSI 1926 and ACCOPPIATURE MISTRAL present the installation Bonjour Elégance
Mistral's elegant leather upholstery evokes the intimacy of a twentieth-century interior, which Mantellassi 1926 translates into a contemporary environment that alludes to the world of fashion.
Walls covered with leather boiserie decorated with different patterns host an ornamental screen with a strong scenic impact and a central design sofa.
Overall, it is an emotional total-look installation as an expression of innovative applications of Italian leather translated into a cosmopolitan language.
