Alcantara presented the “Alcantara Design Museum” at Superstudio Più in the Tortona district during Design Week 2009.
A selection of internationally renowned designers has been invited to contribute their own personali interpretation of Alcantara, and its countless applications, emphasizing the features and unique characteristics of the material. This interpretation will be realized through the redecoration of an object created by one of several leading producers in the field of design.
Why Pietro Lissoni chose Alcantara?
“Alcantara is an extraordinary material that allows all future thinking to become a today’s reality. The virtually unlimited possible combinations of Extrasoft are perfectly suited to couple with the several languages that this material proposes and make it perfect to cover any seat”.
