MISSONI HOME is set to unveil a never-before-seen retrospective during the 2015 Interior Design Show in Toronto.
The Italian brand will celebrate its 60th anniversary with the exhibit, curated by the show’s International Guest of Honor Wanda Jelmini, Creative Director of T&J Vestor, Missoni Home, who will also speak at the event.
“Missoni is a superpower in the creative world, rich in history and collaborations,” says Judy Merry, Vice President of Informa Canada. “We’re looking forward to hearing Wanda’s insight on its global success.”
The Missoni Home line was added to the company’s product range in 1983 and features colorful collections of furnishings, textiles, and décor characterized by unusual fabrics, whimsical prints, and simple shapes.
The line follows Rosita Missoni’s philosophy for living: “The home is alive. It’s constantly evolving and never finished… Furnishing my way means creating a habitat that’s ordered yet informal, versatile and welcoming.”
As Rosita’s niece, Jelmini has worked in the family business for 31 years.
“Inspiration can be captured at any and every moment,” she says. “We take out forms, shapes and colors and start by experimenting with how they could be applied in a new way.”
The Interior Design Show will run from January 22-25, 2015, showcasing hot-topic design trends and the most innovative of international and Canadian design.
