Maison Matisse

Echoing the artist’s stroke, the Maison Matisse collections are made entirely by hand, calling upon the best artisanal craftsmanship. Whether in the manufacture of the collection La Musique in earthenware or the realization of the collection Intérieur aux Aubergines, they feature a great diversity of know-how.

These processes make these pieces valuable and express their intrinsic worth. They leave a trace of the movement of the hand that transforms each object into a unique piece.

Ceramics

The La Musique collection is made entirely by hand, calling upon one of the oldest artisanal manufactories in Italy (a family-run business founded in Tuscany in 1921).Poured into molds and then removed, the pieces first undergo two firings, allowing the design to be applied to the biscuit between these two steps, following the spolvero technique. The decor is then painted, with the exception of the dessert plates that are engraved using a pen with a metal tip.

For the Intérieur aux Aubergines collection, the tops of the coffee tables have also been made entirely by hand in the same studio. The pieces are fired a first time, then painted with engobe and fired again to set the color. 

Rattan

Each piece of furniture from Intérieur aux aubergines collection has a unique structure, entirely made from rattan by the greatest Italian craftsmen, who have been working in the Brianza area since 1889 and are now among the last in Europe. Each piece of furniture, whether sofa, armchair or coffee table, is made from a type of rattan called Manao, which can grow up to 300 meters long and is harvested in the wild in the tropical jungles of Indonesia. The stalk is cut into lengths of 4 to 10m, dried in an upright position, then selected based on use, color, density, and diameter. To bend them, the stalks are warmed, without burning them, before being dampened with a cloth to set the curve. The thinnest parts—more specifically the core of the rattan—are placed wet in a frame, then removed once they have dried to the desired shape. Using nails hidden by the binding (rattan ribs), the stalks are then assembled and sanded by hand to ensure that they are soft to the touch. Finally, two coats of varnish are needed: the first is absorbed by the rattan, and the second is used to seal the last remaining loose fibers, which are then sanded by hand. The piece is finished with a matte finish.

Textiles

For the Intérieur aux aubergines collection, the fabrics used for the seats, the folding screen, the wallpaper and cushions, were made from natural yarns by a renowned Venetian factory that dates back to the 18th century. Here, high-tech jacquard looms have been used to create two types of lampas, one with a foliage pattern and the other with a pear pattern, using the Gobelin weaving technique. Several weaving tests were required to produce four custom-made color combinations, two for the warps and two for the weft, as imagined by Cristina Celestino. The opaque aspect of the cotton warp creates a contrast with the semi-gloss of the natural viscose weft to give the pattern a feeling of depth. Made on traditional jacquard looms whose weave allows a double-sided bicolor finish, our plaids are composed of wool (50%) and extra fine merino wool (50%) from New Zealand, characterized for its extreme softness. Three times finer than traditional wool, our merino wool is a luxurious fiber, very healthy since it is non-allergenic and eco-friendly.

Rugs

The rugs from Intérieur aux aubergines collection were made by a Milan-based textile company which operates near Kathmandu in the Buddha region of Nepal, where its workshop keeps a watchful eye over the entire production process. Each carpet is hand-knotted by local artisans using Himalayan wool, known for its exceptional durability, and Chinese silk. After being spun by hand, the yarn is washed in purified water and dyed in six colors—light and dark versions—all by hand, by the Master of Color, using a spray method, before being knotted. A warp made of thousands of cotton strands is first stretched on a vertical loom, while the cross threads serve as the weft to ensure the stability of the rug. The final product is the result of three months of work in which the wool and silk are knotted according to an age-old technique.
