The Armani/Casa Graphic Elements 1 exclusive wallcoverings collection demonstrates Giorgio Armani's aesthetic approach to wallcoverings: refined, sophisticated and minimalist, designed to cover the home with timeless elegance and intense sophistication. The designs reference oriental aesthetics, filtered through a Western cultural prism and executed through the use of sophisticated and contemporary media. They feature metallic effects and elaborate textures that create a harmonious marriage between graphics and materials. Designs inspired by patterned Japanese kimonos and tsubas, a design element of traditional Japanese swords, feature highly ornamental elements – the result is beautiful, tasteful decor. Classic Armani/Casa patterns such as checkerboard and chevron, as well as graphic interpretations of natural elements such as bamboo and cherry blossoms, complement the themes of the collection. Effects on different supports coordinate the decorative elements. The rich and exquisite tones of ruby red, sapphire blue and jade green are a counterpoint to the collection's classic shades of ice, ivory, gold, taupe and grey.
