Five years after the launch of Rubelli Casa in 2015, Rubelli has entrusted the Italian architect and designer Matteo Nunziati with the creative direction of its division devoted to furnishings. To mark the start of this collaboration, Matteo Nunziati recounts, “I concentrated not on the idea of designing pieces that would be iconic, protagonists. Rather I aimed at a collection that would furnish a complete ambiance with a coherent style, in which each element would be part of a dialogue.” And the Tela armchair is only one of these elements, but it already expresses the essence of a broader and more articulated project that comprises two lines of upholstered furniture complete with sofas and armchairs, a series of coffee tables and side-tables, a bookcase and line of sideboards. All the pieces are united by the use of precious materials (from walnut to marble, fabric and leather), the care lavished on every detail and the introduction of innovative processes. For example, in Tela, the fabric framed in the solid wood structure (eucalyptus, black walnut and wengé-stained ash) and paired with leather becomes a structural material. Each structural detail, such as the joint between the back, legs and armrests, sheathed in leather, is designed to bring out the craft quality. Because the idea behind Matteo Nunziati 's new artistic direction is to renew the look of Rubelli Casa while preserving all its values.
