It is incredible to see how powerful personal and corporate
growth can be when design, art, passion and skills
come together in the common goal of creating unique objects.
PROJECT FOR POLTRONA FRAU.
SANLUCA 50+50. CASTIGLIONI. MAX HUBER. MILAN. 03 — 10 — 2018
The aim was to re-edit the Sanluca armchair designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, with a completely new approach, covering it with a fabric from the unpublished work “Geophysical Waves” by the famous graphic designer Max Huber, a very close friend. The challenge was to transfer a graphic design in its exact proportions to a soft Jacquard fabric in wool and cotton. Everyone, within their respective areas of responsibility, took on with great enthusiasm all that was needed to achieve the goal. The design was scanned and Torri Lana then transformed it into a weaving program that made it possible to create an exclusive fabric.
“Teamwork, passion, research, attention to detail, design culture and reliability.
These values make the experience of product development true, passionate and shared. This is also motivated by the great passion for design and enthusiasm for challenges and new projects.
It was therefore easy to get in touch with Torri Lana to propose the idea of creating a special fabric to cover the Sanluca Limited Edition, which celebrates the Castiglioni brothers and their friendship with Max Huber.”

PROJECT FOR FENDI CASA.
SIX SHADES OF PALMER. TOAN NGUYEN. MILAN. 04 – 2017
“Maison Fendi asked me to create a unique and iconic piece that could connect the world of fashion to that of furniture, at the Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan. We had the opportunity to develop a range of six coloured fabrics with Torri Lana. Our goal was to create for the Maison Fendi a composition of the modular sofa Palmer in perfect gradient between a specific shade of red and pink. The idea of a gradient in itself was not particularly innovative, but the application on a structured multiyarn fabric and in perfect harmony was. Although the computer was a fundamental tool to start with, it was the Torri Lana team expert eye, sensitivity and experience that made this project possible.” – Toan Nguyen
PROJECT FOR HELLA JONGERIUS.
LONDON DESIGN MUSEUM. BREATHING COLOUR. LONDON. 28.06.2017-24.09.2017
When Jongeriuslab approached us at the beginning of 2017, we accepted this new challenge with enthusiasm. While Hella and her staff were visiting our company, they had a good look at our archives and machinery. We put our technical know-how to use and immediately created a good personal working environment. We were then asked to collaborate on the development of a new concept for the “fading evening” section, the light that fades in the evening, for the Breathing Colour exhibition. Observing the creation of such a fabric with unusual and completely innovative aspects, was a unique and unforgettable experience for us. We were honoured to participate in this cultural project of great international importance, and to see our fabrics exhibited at the London Design Museum, in June 2017.
“Good mills like Torri Lana – with excellent people who are technically skilled and have a sensibility for the materials they work with – are essential for me as designer. The mill’s translation of my hand woven design samples into industrial products is one of the keys to innovation for me. Together, we push boundaries and Create magic”.
