FROM FABRIC TO WALLCOVERING DESIGN FOR A COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE LANGUAGE OF GEOMETRY AND TAILORING
Twill, also called sargia in Italian (from the French sergé), is a well-known fabric and it is recognizable for its particular structure, which makes it different from all the others. In fact, it is the only fabric having a frame with diagonal lines of 45-degree slope due to a particular weaving of weft and warp threads.
Its characteristic “herringbone” pattern determined the success of Twill all over the world, where it is appreciated especially in men’s shirts, due to its particular fabric frame, which enhances the brilliance and vivacity of the colors, especially in plain-colored outfits.
What about the awesomeness of the Twill fabric transferred on a covering?
We can enjoy it in the new Twill Collection by TapLab Wall Covering, thanks to the collaboration with Dainelli Studio, which was inspired by the magical complexity of warp and weft, and transferred the same appeal on wallpapers obtaining an aesthetic result of great cleanliness and elegance.
The geometry of the English twill with its characteristic “herringbone” pattern creates a remarkable light and dark geometric play on paper, thus showing a graphic motif with a strong visual impact and a very material appearance, even in its rigorous simplicity.
From the simplest variant, where the dark stroke draws the pattern on a pure white canvas, to the more optical ones, where the timeless combination of black&white plays the role of the main character with some gray incursions, getting to variations dominated by chromatic combinations of natural tones. Each covering from the Twill collection shows a taste for decoration perfectly balanced between design and innovation.
TapLab Wall Covering method in the development of this collection together with Dainelli Studio was a tailoring one, original patterns were created and reproduced on coverings with great skill and craftsmanship, according to TapLab customs. The result is a fresh collection with a strong character, giving personality to any type of living space; a collection aimed at interior decorators and architects, but also at private customers attentive to lifestyle trends.
High quality reproduction of each pattern from the Twill collection can be obtained on every TapLab finish, that is to say on LabTela vinyl covering, LabJewel, or LabGlassfiber.
