Renowned as a leader in tiles worldwide, SICIS have collaborated with fashion powerhouse, Christian Lacroix.
The furniture collection created by Lacroix for SICIS is remnant of not only the history of mosaics in the Ravenna region and its Byzantine connection to the Empress Theodora, but also his hometown of Arles, esteemed for its Roman tiles and antiquities.
“Having the privilege of being brought up between monuments, museums and 17th century houses – all well-steeped in the history of art - gave me the confidence that everything could be mixed up, particularly the most extreme styles such as baroque, neo-classical, post-modern, kitsch and pop,” Lacroix said.
From April 12 - 17, the collection of furniture designed by Mr Christian Lacroix will be presented at the Salone del Mobile Milan fair in a new SICIS lifestyle set-up. From June 2011, it will be distributed worldwide in all of SICIS’s showrooms.
