Rewarded of a diploma in decorative Art in 1990, Pietro Seminelli brings up pleat’s concept into interior architecture. The pleat becomes decoration and a new art work is born.
Pietro Seminelli became a pleat’s architect combining both his passions which are the decoration and the art of textile.
He likes excellence and brings a new glance on the art of pleating to which he got rewarded Master of Art by the Culture and communication Ministry in 2006, for the excellence and the rarity of his know-how.
Pietro Seminelli’s glance is about nature and everything surrounding him becomes an inexhaustible source of inspiration. He also likes geometry and conceives diagrams which he applies to many different fabrics such as linen and abaca.
The fabrics are transformed thanks to the foldings and his expertise. The folding brings a subtle game of transparencies, and the style changes the fabrics into real volumes.
The pleats are pinned up and then handly sewed in order to get an aerial feeling, offering a result similar to the art of stained-glass’s transparency.
This know-how’s characteristics are related to the diagram’s complexity, accuracy and to the hand’s dexterity.
