The Esotismi collection for Misha evokes a daydream. It is a fantasy vision where an imaginary flower in loud, unnatural colours sits against flat, repeated backdrops inspired by the world of textiles: ridged lines alternate with vertical stripes, micropatterns and military designs. The wallcoverings, Oasi, Formosa, Cabana and Passiflora, made in pure silk and hand-embroidered or hand-painted, show an eye-popping landscape that mixes and incorporates organic geometries and elements.
OasiOasi is made of a wise and balanced combination of geometric figures and botanical elements such as pictures of large-sized raspberries and spectacular tropical palms, enriched by silk embroidery combined with coloured bands and raised gold details
FormosaThe décor takes a cue from the world of photography where a colourful border serves as background for a hypothetical mise en scène of a dreamlike, surreal atmosphere. Ferns and exotic plants comprise the border to a foreground of giant and surreal mushrooms characterised by bright and unnatural colours.
PassifloraThe passiflora, or passion flower, with its fruits, is the undisputed protagonist of this paper. The oversized design combines with luxuriant fern shrubs in a continuous dialogue of overlaps and transparencies between foreground and background elements. The inspiration for the background comes from the textile world, geometric micro-patterns alternate with wide diagonal stripes.
CabanaThe protagonist of Cabana is an uncontrolled and verdant nature. The paper was developed as a true homage to the “vagabonds” (citing Gilles Clement): wild and continuously moving plants.“Oversized” flora hides and reappears between the stripes of a background of decisive and rigorous geometries. The overall effect is of a continuous dialogue between order and disorder.
