Wabi-sabi is a Japanese aesthetic term that defines the art of seeing beauty in the imperfections. There is no exact description for this philosophy, not even in its home country, Japan. A typical ambiguity of the Japanese culture.
With Wabi-sabi as a background concept we present Harmonía, a collection 100% faithful to the simple and natural spirit pursued by this philosophy. Its sobriety and extreme quality can be perceived in the three fabrics of the collection: Morfeo, Perseo and Kronos.
Wabi-sabi’s spirit in images
Inspired by Gaetano Pesce’s imperfections
Gaetano Pesce is an Italian architect and designer of reference. According to Ana Domínguez Siemens, an expert design journalist, Pesce is the greatest western example of the Wabi-sabi concept.
In the 70s, he began to introduce the idea of the beauty in the imperfections and the unfinished details. Pesce always includes the defect in all of his works, even in those creations he has made for Cassina, the exquisite Italian furniture firm. This brand is especially famous for the quality of its details, however the Italian designer left the workers to finish the pieces according to their own criteria. This way he could obtain different objects and was capable to break with the standardisation of mass production.
His work is characterized by experimentation. Since 1962 he has worked with new materials to create wonderful shapes, converting him in one of the most versatile and less conventional designers of the 21st century.
