Al Salone del Mobile 2019, the design brand and the textile manufacture, a point of reference for famous fashion houses, collaborate in a new collection of textures that can be transferred to glass and applied to furniture, which connects design and fashion.
On the occasion of the Milan International Furniture Fair LAKE, an innovative Italian design brand that creates furnishings for all areas of the home, and Bonotto, an Italian excellence producer of fabrics and a reference point in the international fashion scene, collaborate for the first time in the creation of XGlass Home Couture, a capsule collection that brings together design and high fashion. Thanks to XGlass technology, the elegance of the fabrics designed by Giovanni Bonotto - creative director of the brand - comes to life on the glass and gives new emotions to the furnishings, contaminating them with new expressive languages.
Presented during the last Salone del Mobile and awarded in January 2019 with the Good Design® Award, XGlass is an innovative technology that arises from the continuous research of new finishes and that allows images to be transferred onto glass, reinterpreting the different materials, from marble to wood up to metals and fabrics. XGlass is able to combine the qualities of a noble and precious material such as glass with its ability to enhance the peculiarities of the textures and interpret even the smallest detail.
Both born in Veneto and with a centuries-old history behind them, LAGO and Bonotto share the attention for creativity, culture, the contamination of different languages and quality, becoming ambassadors of a type of slow production that is detached from the idea of fast and low-cost production which, on the contrary, gives space to craftsmanship and ancient knowledge. Fundamental for Giovanni Bonotto is, in fact, the concept of Slow Factory which represents the manifesto against industrial standardization and which refers to the use of old mechanical looms, capable of expressing the savoir faire and the Italian creative heritage and of giving life to products. that express the luxury of craftsmanship in the truest sense of the term.
Bonotto is an avant-garde company that has grown in parallel with the Italian fashion system and which, thanks to its visionary outlook, has been able to enter the international world of haute couture alongside famous high fashion houses.
