Rubelli at the Musée des Tissus de Lyon
20 July 2013

Rubelli and Moroso meet at the Musée des Tissus et des Art Décoratifs de Lyon, one of the world’s top textile museums, from June 20th to September 1st for the exhibition Lo Sguardo Laterale: Moroso, une recherche entre Arts décoratifs et Design.
A promenade through the museum to discover an unusual display of unique creations produced for Moroso by great designers. The exhibition is made even more special by the ”dress“ of the pieces: a precious brocade designed by Rubelli which faithfully reproduces a pointed paper housed in the French museum and that has been attributed to Philippe de Lasalle, one of the leading figures in the eighteenth century silk industry.
A fabric with an elegant decorative pattern which is precious for its quality (the use of organzine silk) and for the quantity of threads (180 wefts per centimeter). Some of the most important products in the Moroso collection were upholstered with this fabric, such as the armchairs Smoke, Bohemian, Fjord by Patricia Urquiola.
