In this way Relief was born, a collection of jacquard operated fabric that has become famous over the centuries -dating back from 1450- for its refined execution and irrefutable beauty.At the Salone del Mobile 2019, Bruno Tarsia – renowned architect and interior stylist Milan-based known for his countless cooperations with national and international brands – chosen for the creation of his first textile collection l’Opificio, a Turin family company specialized in the production of fabrics and high-end furnishing velvets.
Bruno Tarsia’s work aims to combine, with a poetic and creative touch, imagination, reality and elegance. Geometric lines and chromatics embody the architect’s stylistic references through a new and contemporary vision. The new gobelin has a renewed and contemporary dimension. An architectural composition of full and empty spaces, where textures, weaves and nuances create different planes. The different warps and wefts, characteristic of the gobelin weaving technique, produce a detailed design with a three-dimensional effect of different yarns and nuances. From neutral colours to rich gold tones, from intense red to blue ethereal and finally to shades of black and grey.
With a versatile and eclectic taste, Bruno Tarsia produces editorial photo shoots, commercial catalogues, exhibitions and advertising campaigns, but also interior design for private clients and showrooms. Following his experiences in the field of interior decoration, he also works as a set designer for fashion photoshoots.
