There is a shop in Porta Venezia in Milan of those that if you see them not forget them. Through the large windows that overlook Via Lecco, the emporium of Lisa Corti appears in a triumph of fabrics and decorative objects, furniture East, colonial style, hand-painted designs on the floors.
The store is housed in the spaces of a former seventeenth century convent and includes 800 square meters of shop, workshop, offices and warehouse, in an explosion of light and color: a real creative laboratory where they are sewing machines alongside computers and drawing boards. The “sacredness” of the space is in contrast to products with an exotic and refined taste of this “Home Textile Emporium”, whose fabrics, of Indian and African inspiration, are reworked design in an original way by Lisa Corti.
Cotton, muslin, malmai, wool, silk, zari cloth, Mushroo, ikat, bandhani, khadi, chintz, calico; these are the different types of fabrics that are used in the creation of the world Lisa Corti.
The ancient technique of hand printing on fabric ( blockprint ) is used to create the patterns or spreads, which can be used in various ways depending on the customer’s creativity: as a piece of furniture, such as bed covers or covers for sofas, upholstery, tablecloth, tapestry or curtains. Lisa Corti also explores the colorful world of the mandala-a type of geometric design used in religious practice as a tool for meditation but also how to plan for the construction of temples-as a home decor for carpets, quilts, tapestries, banners, murals and other forms. And curtains, pillows of various shapes (especially those with a roller, inspired by the ornamental tradition Moghul and Rajput), a collection of clothing and accessories made of organza kaftans, kurtas muslin, bags, belts etc…, and finally a line of furniture for the house in which stand out the blue pottery of Jaipur and the “Company of the beds”: the complementary furnishings inspired by the oriental furniture tradition.
A fascinating world to discover.
