Besana Carpet Lab presents Planetario, a project designed and developed by
Cristina Celestino which strongly highlights the identity and unique features of wall-to-wall carpeting.
Planetario is an exquisite ode to the past glory of carpeting, yet casts its gaze to the future.
A scenic retro-futuristic setting welcomes visitors in a dream-like domestic atmosphere
inspired by the themes of space and of its antithesis, the underwater world, whose elements
are found in the latest collection created by the designer.
Her vision is that a new era has come for this fabric and its unexpected uses; this has allowed
the designer – who is renowned for her natural tendency to transform and reinterpret
materials – to delve into the use of this precious fabric. She analysed how carpeting was
used at the time of its greatest glory, in the 1960s and 1970s, drawing inspiration from the
sophisticated interiors designed by Nanda Vigo, Willy Rizzo and Joe Colombo.
