Texere is a contemporary tapestry evoking ancient forms of expression through hi-tech production methods.

Combining ancient wisdom with modern technologies.

Inspired by knitted fabrics and handmade processes, it is composed of geometrical concatenated modules made from wool felt. A textile structure that allows a continuous piece to be formed without any limitation in length. The result illustrates the rigorous precision of Atom cutting machines, through a light and delicate modular configuration.

Project commissioned for the exhibition “Atom: The Cutting Factory”, taking place at La Triennale di Milano from 11-30 November 2016

In a new story, 12 designers will emphasise in 12 individual works the industrial and production technologies of Atom, the Italian company that is the world leader in the production of cutting systems for flexible and semi-rigid materials. The exhibition, celebrating the first 70 years of Atom activity, will show a clear dialogue between industry and design, combining technology and creativity: all the projects explore the creative process of product design, and look at the materials and the interaction between them. All within a scenario that combines art, fashion, design and technology with aesthetics, to show the comprehensive production potential of Atom systems.
