Assi del Cansiglio project by Itlas
2019 Milano Design Week – April 8th to 14th, 2019
Photos by Armando Moneta
The famous Italian designer Andrea Castrignano joined the “Assi del Cansiglio” project promoted by Itlas. This project consists on recovering and re-using timber from the Cansiglio forest that was seriously affected by a major storm in October of 2018.
So, for the floors of his new collection, Andrea Castrignano chose European Beech from the Cansiglio forest, the same forest that for centuries had its lumber used on the ancient Venetian Republic ships.
Andrea’s new collection was inspired by the fascinating fashion world; he re-invented a traditional geometric pattern using it on several materials and surfaces, including the Cansiglio’s European Beech, creating this way, an exquisite hardwood floor design with a strong visual impact.
The diamond shaped boards are individually cut at 36 degrees, and finished in different colours/stains. This unique concept created an innovative chevron pattern that combined with a staggered width installation, enhances the abstract reference common on Andrea’s collection.
This new collection was presented during the 2019 Milano Design Week at the A Collection Fuorisalone event and very soon will be available for sale through Itlas Dealers or International exclusive Importers, as it is the case of Trends & Trades.
Announcement: Introducing ITLAS
Toronto, November 30th, 2018
Since our first day in business, there is something that hasn’t changed; our commitment to work only with authentic, quality, innovative, and ecologically responsible manufacturers and products.
During this year, we felt the need to re-adjust and refresh our product range, discontinuing some lines and introducing in lieu, other new and exciting collections. Consequently, after an extensive and exhaustive sourcing process, it’s with great pleasure that we formally announce that we have recently secured the rights to exclusively import to Canada ITLAS.
ITLAS is a leading Italian manufacturer specialized in the production of pre-finished 2 & 3 layers engineered wood flooring, which holds PEFC & FSC Certifications and also ISO 14001.
These certifications are only possible because ITLAS dedicates considerable attention, not only to the source of the raw materials used to produce their floors, which comes from forests that are managed in a correct and responsible way, but also to the fact that all the chemicals used within their production process, as for instance adhesives and finishes, are zero or low VOC and Formaldehyde Class E1.
In recent years, ITLAS product range has been tremendously extended and the options available can meet any need in terms of décor and budget. It ranges from their very high-end collections that are all 100% Made in Italy to other quality products under the brand LABOR LEGNO, some partially manufactured at their abroad factories, and therefore, very attractively priced.
Besides Engineered Wood Floors, LABOR LEGNO product range also includes, Solid Wood Floors, Wood for Exterior Decking and Wall Cladding, as well as, an impressive collection of LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles).
More recently, ITLAS also introduced a very unique and beautiful line of exquisite wood Bathroom Furniture & Floors, PROGETTO BAGNO , which also includes, wood wall cladding products, and accessories.
PROGETTO BAGNO is a slick and clean wood bathroom collection with a strong visual impact. It combines wood – always the main element in every Itlas’ creation – with other materials, such as marble, quartz, and resins.
The warmth of the natural wood with the option of customization allows endless solutions that will suit any style or decor. Additionally, new lacquered finishes with a sophisticated silky touch elegantly offsets the natural texture of the wood.
The symbiose between the design and Mother Nature, inspires concepts of elegance and refinement, helping to create spaces where emotions and intimacy meet flawlessly.
To complement PROGETTO BAGNO, an organic line of accessories “Collection I MASSIVI ” was born from concepts from famous Architects and Interior Designers, such as, Marco Casamonti, Massimiliano e Doriana Fuksas, and Claudio Silvestri.
The idea behind these creations is to reject completely the abnormal and elaborate transformation of the materials, usually associated with the cycle of industrial production, and instead promote intentionally every single feature of the raw material in regard to its “coarseness”, texture, form, colour, and even smell.
Although the renovation that our Downtown Toronto Showroom went through during the last few months is not 100% completed, please don’t hesitate to schedule a visit to preview most of ITLAS Collections, including PROGETTO BAGNO.
Listone Giordano’s Biscuit Featured on The Marilyn Denis Show (CTV)
Toronto, January 25, 2018
Designers Jonathan Mann & Julia Tuitt-Mann from Maison J&J Inc. featured this week on CTV’s Marilyn Denis Show, Listone Giordano’s Biscuit line.
On their “Top 6” segment, Jonathan and Julia focused on the coolest designs that came out of this year’s Toronto Interior Design Show and our Biscuit line was one of them.
Designed by Patricia Urquiola exclusive for Listone Giordano, the Biscuit line reinvents traditional wood floors, where rounded, bevelled, and curved boards along with a slightly ”bombe” effect of the surface, creates a new language. Additionally, the smooth cut of the boards generates new designs and compositions, transforming classic patterns of ancient wood floors into a modern and original herringbone, diagonal, or full lengths geometries.
