During Fuorisalone 2021, Kasthall presents a journey connecting Swedish and Italian design.
A journey through Swedish and Italian design history is the concept of ‘Craftsmanship Heritage – Italian and Swedish Design Through The Ages’.
The exhibition takes place at Kasthall Milano Flagship Store during Fuorisalone 2021, from September 4th to 10th, and will be open until September 30th.
By placing icons of Italian design side by side with historical Kasthall rugs, the installation focus attention on the craftsmanship, quality and attention to detail that unite the two realities.
Kasthall, who has been crafting tailor-made artisan rugs since 1889, invite visitors to immerse themselves in a mise-en-scene curated by Stefano Gaggero. On display are rugs from Kasthall’s vast archive of original sketches, ranging from the ’50s to the ’80s, in a timely decade setting combined with refinedicons of Italian design. The rugs are selected from the new 2021 Collective Impressions collection, which reinterpret some of the brand’s most iconic historical pieces as: Påfågel, Balders Hage and Square.
The exhibition is divided in four rooms, one for each decade – with a conceptual settingthat places a selection of icon furniture of the period alongside each rug.
