Custom +

Custom+ defines a new shared lexicon of design, starting from the spontaneous and fun language of drawing, to geometric composition and experimentation, for a new encyclopaedia of living.



Once more parquet engages the vertical element in dialogue, creating a harmonious “ecosystem”, an enveloping atmosphere within which every single element is designed to feel part of the whole, closely interconnected. Custom+ is not a simple product-collection, rather it is a “creative foothold”, a “grid of inspiration” and design instrument for modulating your own contemporary living space with an original twist of inspiration.

The architect Marco Carini was tasked with writing the first notes of this living staff, through a series of 11 “rooms” featuring elegant atmospheres, with the aim of enhancing and requalifying the work of mankind through the entire generative process. 

Using a musical metaphor, the architect Marco Carini has tuned this project to the harmonic frequency of nature at 432 Hz, a sound connected to the heart and joy. A highly pleasing result for our senses, a soft and luminous effect that successfully reflects the elements “rooms” are made up of, inventing them starting from the lowest possible number of items, culminating in compositions that orbit around the prospective dimension of the flooring. An open vision that places the person at the centre cannot but take nature itself and the material the Universe is made of into consideration, as it contains us too. What can be composed with the seven notes arranged on the staff? Jazz or classical music can be played. The “settings” suggested by the architect and his Firm are arranged within this compositional freedom, sartorial settings that make room for interlocutors and interpreters of different countries, cultures and design sensitivities. Aware applications of the use of a precious raw material that should never be wasted, hence the penchant for sizes which enable the optimisation of industrial processes in all steps of its creation.

Inspired by harmony, typical of the period of Scandinavian functionalism, the composition is grounded in the typical alternation of the rhythm of life. Light and dark colours become day and night, the tonalities of bark and natural, freshly cut wood. The light sliding between one line and another is like the pianism of Glenn Gould, soft and full of accents as well as nuances. Classica. Its prosody merges with that of the architecture that contains it.

Eclectic and brimming with history; current and fresh. A vertical line crosses lighter, horizontal lines, just like in a comb, becoming a fabric, regularly repeating itself, enveloping the room. The ambience, inspired by the refined interiors of Carlo Mollino, welcomes it, like a warm, sovereign embrace.

The waters of Flemish ports reflect off home colours, from filiform contours with alternating colours. The longest shadow crosses light, shorter yet repeated colours. Just like in an urban fabric, concentration and breath alternate, like in accordion music, compressions and dilations merge. Brevity and length are not opposite elements, but fluid elements of the same thing.

The patterns, fabrics and rugs of Anni Albers constitute the formal matrix of the composition. The yarns have been replaced by wood pieces which are thin, broad, vast and small, as though the room has become a huge canvass, surrounded by the colours and atmospheres of Provence, as though in an impressionist painting, the rhythm of nature that changes when captured on a background, which becomes a spontaneous sequence.

Jazz, the alteration of white and black keys on the same keyboard. The hands of Thelonious Monk, playing the notes of Duke Ellington. A surface becomes music, with a syncopated rhythm that rediscovers harmony. Fulls and voids alternate, stripped of all positivity and negativity. Wood becomes energy.

Warm, like a heavy woollen coat, with a herringbone pattern, when outside it is snowing and cold. Fresh, like an early spring breeze carrying the first colours, after the greyness of the melancholy season. Rich in alternations, in juxtaposed elements. Harmonious, like a wave pursuing the rhythms of the depths.

A construction played out with modular elements: one shorter and another, more elongated one. The subtle nuance is there for the most attentive of eyes to behold. It is short poetry, like a sonnet, a fable that warms the heart. It is as sharp as a pencil, which leaves a delicate mark on a sheet of paper.

Architecture is a language and the best architects are like poets”, Mies said. Nature is poetry, it is spontaneous architecture, like the rhythm of this composition, which is regular and full of harmony. It is almost as though you are in a broad, tree-line boulevard which magically leads towards a fulcrum, typical of the architectonic signs of a time when detail was blended in a balanced way.

It appears symmetrical yet it is not, it feels like an infinitely repeated rhythm, as though in a mirror, which reflects perfect symmetry. In reality, nature is an alternation, apparently symmetrical, like a leaf, like a tree. If you come close, you notice that asymmetry is perfect, just as it is. A thin, long line pursues a shorter rope that is just as dark. Inside, it carries alternate strokes in compositions set at right angles to each other, which are complementary.

This is what spring in blossom is like. Delicate, explosive and silent. Full of energy and peace, like a zen garden. Oriental courtesy, attention to detail, near perfection. Rhythm becomes ritual. The dark sign is interwoven with light ones in a balanced way. Rebirth.
