-Pietro Seminelli Maître Plisseur- English Version
The world of interior architecture and decoration is a treasure trove of rare expertise and unique savoir-faire,including the Art of Folding.
In Japan, origami is a recreational form of this fascinating art.
In France, the art of folding is often used in Haute Couture and fashion, but it is less common in the world of decoration. And yet, when working with textiles, folding is a very subtle, elegant way to create volume.
Veritable stained glass windows forged from fabric provide the perfect touch of transparency for blinds, sheer curtains, sliding panels, drapes and folding screens.
The only recognized specialist of this unusual art form resides in France. A veritable artist, this creator can turn simple textile into a sumptuous creation. A refined universe where folds and pleats create a unique play of light.
Distinguished in 2006 by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication for the excellence of his savoir-faire, here is “Pietro Seminelli. Portrait of a master folder (“maître plisseur”)”, brought to you by Reportage-Maison:
