Loro Piana Interiors presents “Apacheta” by Cristián Mohaded during Design Week 2023

News, Appointments, Milan — 11 April 2023

A project by Argentinian designer and artist will be the protagonist through an installation inside the Cortile della Seta, at Loro Piana’s Milanese headquarters.

The contrasting landscapes of Argentina inspired Mohaded’s dreamlike world, where twelve towers made in Loro Piana Interiors fabrics rise from the ground and embrace the furniture. Apachetas are piles of stones that mark paths and passes in the Andes. Beautiful and sacred, unstable in their centuries-old stability, they have become the starting point of the journey that Cristián Mohaded has taken with Loro Piana Interiors, creating a tribute to nature with a sustainable approach.

The collaboration between the maison and the designer is based on shared values such as passion for materials and craftsmanship, and the certainty that beauty and harmony can arise from contrasts. The pieces of furniture designed by Mohaded are there to be admired: sofas, stools, a bench, courtesy tables. They look like stones, softened by using tactile materials by Loro Piana Interiors. They feature hand-carved wooden elements in the more rounded parts, to create contrast, like rocks between the stones that give stability and offer surfaces to rest objects on. Wood and fabric meet a third material: ceramic, whose colors are inspired by the Argentine lagoons, red or white, the same colors as the towers. All taken from the extraordinary natural palette of the landscape. “Apacheta” continues with two outdoor installations in Piazzetta Brera and Via Montenapoleone 27.
