Inalco launched 3 new collections -Art, Berna and Evoque- during the presentations in Mercado Colón and Cevisama 2015. All three were highly regarded by the attending professionals to these events and sum up all the qualities and aesthetic of “The signature of Time” motto.
“The Signature of Time” slogan conveys the passing of time as a possitive asset that transforms things into lending them a beauty and expressive appeal. Therefore objects spark off feelings and emotions and are intrinsically linked to us, enhancing their natural qualities and inspiring us to regard beauty as something that is alive and improves with the passing of the years. When we apply this trend to our new collections, the resulting simple, uncontrived, worn natural surfaces have an amazing beauty and aesthetic charm.
Here we present these new collections in the following report:
Evoque is the result of an idea to snatch brief fragments of the past in an attempt to recreate warm nostalgic moments. It is all the quintessential charm and irresistibility of wood with a tale to tell, as its pieces echo the passing of time. The rugosity of this new surface, inspired by aged wood, brings beauty and softness, evoking the gentle rhythms of the passing of time. The collection is available in a wide choice of colours, ranging from the white tones of wood faded by the sun and sea, to the ash and greyish hues of aged ash and walnut wood.
We treasure the experiences we accumulate over time and which become fixed in our minds. Art is inspired by the simplicity of a handcrafted product such as terracotta combined with cement to create beauty that smoothes out the differences between past and present, looking back in time whilst at the same time incorporating the latest trends. The colours of Art – blanco, piedra, plomo and corten – are complemented by hexagonal pieces that create simple settings reflecting the legacy of past generations.
Harmony and neutral beauty come together in Berna, a new collection featuring designs that combine the strength of Nordic stone and the energy of the earth. The colours included in this series – Blanco, Moka, Gris and Negro – merge timidly with the random veining featured in the designs, making for a serenely elegant surface. Berna is the perfect ally for designers and interior architects when it comes to creating décor projects and settings that offer outstanding aesthetic and functional values.
